Aboriginal Workers

The Canadian Labour Congress presently channels it's work on Aboriginal Rights in the two main areas;

  1. the promotion of Aboriginal Rights and anti-Racism in respect to Aboriginal workers;
  2. and working with Aboriginal workers to strengthen their voices and presence in the Canadian labour movement.

In addition, the Canadian Labour Congress does policy and advocacy work in respect to the impact of government social and economic policies on Aboriginal communities.

The Congress is committed to strengthen the voices of Aboriginal workers through caucuses, forums, conferences and workshops. The Aboriginal Rights Resource Tool Kit is a resource aid to assist unions and the staff in working toward that goal.
