The Council of Canadians has been working to support grassroots chapters doing important work in their communities for over two decades. We felt it was about time to create a toolkit to help you even more with building your power!
We know that organizing and campaigning can be fluid and unpredictable – our experience with the COVID-19 pandemic is a great example of having a wrench thrown into some well-laid plans! The Council of Canadians has historically had small campaigns with a few people and large campaigns with thousands of people involved. Some are short in length and others go on for years. Some were ultimately successful and others were not, or had some small successes along the way but did not attain the goal. The reality is, this work is about more than outcomes – it is about building a movement, shared community, understanding political power and involving people in the important work for fundamental social change!
