The Calgary & District Labour Council
Today, the CDLC is working with our community partners to maintain and strengthen health care, the public education system, and to protect our social programs.
These things effect every person, union or non-union both working and unemployed. Labour activists volunteer their time in many aspects to build stronger and more caring communities. We do this by fighting for equal access to quality social programs and public services and decent jobs and standard of living for everyone.
Together, we are working to close the growing gap between the rich and poor in our society.

Dec. 6th Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women Via ZOOM
This year has marked many apparent changes to the way we are permitted to support our community, but supporting our community has never been more critical. We must never forget about the most vulnerable in our midst, and our ability to come alongside them, especially in today’s conditions.
With that in mind, we will be offering a new format for this annual event. We will be providing a Zoom Presentation, that will aid in fundraising for the Bow Valley Women’s Emergency Shelter and the Awo Than Healing Lodge Emergency Shelter.
Your support for these two agencies is vital. Without having a ticket price and silent auction, which is how the funds were raised in the past, we are counting on our labour partners to step up and give generously in support, and raise more than other years events. You can send your donations directly to the agencies, or send to us and we will be pleased to forward your donation to them on you behalf. We hope you will participate both in the zoom presentation, and in financially supporting these valuable agencies. If you have any questions send them to email@example.com.
