Demand Compensation for the Victims of Rana Plaza!

One year after the warehouse garment factory known as Rana Plaza in Savar, Bangladesh collapsed and families are still left without financial compensation from some of the world's biggest clothing brands. The Rana Plaza Arrangement was created to ensure that families and injured workers would receive just compensation.

March 31st marks the expiry of the 2004 Health Accord and the federal government has refused to negotiate a new accord.

We are sounding the alarm about the federal government’s funding cuts to wake Canadians up to what this means for our health-care services.

It will lead to the fragmentation of services across the country and that increasingly, access to care will depend on where you live.

Video: Day of Action against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Corporate Globalization

On January 31, 2014, the Council of Canadians participated in an Inter-Continental Day of Action against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Corporate Globalization. Actions and events took place in more than 50 cities across Canada, the United States, Mexico and Australia. 

Dan Peruzzo of D See Video Productions captured the action in Comox, British Columbia and is inviting everyone to share and post the video to their websites, Facebook accounts and listserves. It's a good time to do so with TPP negotiations continuing behind closed doors in Singapore this week.

Intercontinental Day of Action Against Corporate Globalization

Free trade and globalization have long been touted by academics and politicians as the answer to the problems of the modern world. But activists have seen first-hand the devestation that corporate globalization can cause.
