Common Causes

Primary tabs

People in communities across Canada are coming together under a banner of “Common Causes”.

Common Causes/Causes Communes is an assembly of movements dedicated to defending democracy, social justice, the environment and human rights.

It brings together groups and individuals across the country to act together for a better society in the face of the current Conservative government’s agenda that is weakening environmental protections, cutting public services and jobs, ignoring workers’ rights, attacking civil liberties and eroding democracy.

The assembly believes that coordinated action is needed to take a strong stand against the current federal government agenda that is changing society in critical areas such as the economy, the environment, labour rights, health care, food safety, education, social programs, culture, civil liberties, peace and poverty.
