Groundswell: Awareness to Action - The Council of Canadians Annual Conference

June 22, 2018 to June 23, 2018

This year, the Council of Canadians' Annual Conference moves to Canada's capital, Ottawa, Ontario. We will bring together chapter activists, supporters and allies for a dynamic weekend event that includes a public forum on Friday, June 22, followed by workshops, plenary panels and more. Join us on Saturday, June 23 for a day of challenging topics and ideas for action.

Every day Canadians face the reality of the Trudeau government's broken promises. From its failure to protect lakes and rivers from Big Oil, to meet internationally-stated climate pollution reduction targets, to provide true consultation on "free trade" negotiations, to make our electoral system democratic, and to fully implement the rights of Indigenous peoples - promises have been made, but not kept. So how do we turn awareness of these broken promises into action? It's simple: we come together to create a groundswell of people power. By working with civil society groups, labour, Indigenous peoples and others we can put forward a positive vision of a better tomorrow and act on it.

Be a part of Groundswell 2018! Join us for the Council of Canadians' Annual Conference and Supporters Meeting. Together, we hold the power to bring about the better Canada and fairer world we know are possible.

Groundswell 2018 will now be held at the unionized venue of The Capital Hill Hotel and Suites in downtown Ottawa and at Ottawa City Hall
