Conventions

The Canadian Labour Congress holds a Convention every 3 years. Learn more about this process below.

The Canadian Labour Congress holds a Convention every 3 years.  Local unions send delegates to the Convention with proposed resolutions they present to the floor.  The resolutions are debated and policies are adopted.  

At the end of the Convention the Congress develops an Action Plan based on the resolutions, committee reports and policies discussed amongst the members of the Labour movement.  CLC officers are also elected by secret ballots during this week and serve a 3 year term.

This Action Plan is the basis of our work for the next three years. It provides a general guide to the activities of the Congress itself, the provincial and territorial federations of labour, local labour councils and affiliated unions.  For more detailed information on specific Conventions, select the appropriate year below:
