WHAT

This year, the Council of Canadians celebrates 30 years of bringing people together to act for social justice. Join us in Windsor, Ontario to imagine the future Canada we want with good green jobs, a vibrant democracy, a strong public health care system, clean water and a healthy environment, justice for Indigenous peoples, and opportunities for youth.

Occurring just four days after the federal election, our Friday public forum will provide analysis of the federal election results ­– what the results mean for civil society and for Canada, and how we will move forward together to create the Canada we want.
