Council of Canadians London Chapter

CoC_LogoMission

The Council of Canadians fights for economic and social justice. Decades of market-based, corporate-friendly policies have stripped working people of their rights, undermined universal social security, and placed the demands of big business over the rights of people. We promote fair trade over free trade, just and sustainable jobs, public health care and water, energy and food security, and alternatives to corporate power, here in Canada and around the world.

Organizational Objectives

Our goal is to expand our membership to work on more Social Justice issues.
