Canada needs a


for workers and communities

We’re scared, we’re angry, and we know what we need: climate and economic justice for workers and communities.

Thousands of people across the country are being forced to leave their homes because of fires and floods. Millions more can’t breathe properly because of wildfire smoke. Even more of us are struggling to pay for food, housing, and the services that we and our families need. 

We’re scared, we’re angry, and we know who is responsible for these crises: Wealthy corporations that are raking in record-breaking profits while they wreck the climate and jack up the price of food, shelter, and transportation – and governments that give these corporations billions of dollars in handouts and privatize more and more of the services we rely on.   

We’re also hopeful, because we know what we need: climate, social, and economic policies that put power back into the hands of workers and communities – paid for by the same corporations who’ve been profiting off climate breakdown and pushing more of us into poverty. Together, let’s demand leadership that puts people and the planet before corporate profits! 

The federal government is currently looking at passing a Sustainable Jobs Act – but there are some pretty big loopholes that will benefit corporations more than workers and communities.

Send a letter to the committee members responsible for considering and amending the legislation, and demand that key amendments be incorporated. 

Here’s how we’re working to make a Just Transition a reality:

Chip-in to support our work

The Council of Canadians is a grassroots, nonpartisan, independent organization funded almost entirely by tens of thousands of individual Canadian donors. We do not take any money from governments or corporations. Due to our political work, the Council of Canadians is not a registered charity and are unable to provide charitable tax receipts.

Chip-in now to hold our governments accountable and strengthen our democracy.
