Hold the date! For 2016 LabourStart will be returning to Canada for our Global Solidarity Conference. The conference will be held in partnership with the Labour Council of Toronto and York Region in the city of Toronto, 6-8 May, at Ryerson University.
Hamilton, Canada was where LabourStart held its first-ever open conference. It was such a success that we went on to organize conferences in Australia, Turkey and Germany, each more successful than the last. We’re looking forward to that trend continuing.
An organizing committee representing major unions, LabourStart and the Toronto and York DIstrict Labour Council has been struck and we expect a program to be announced early in 2016. No promises, but at this point a major theme looks to be the experiences of migrant workers. A registration fee of $50 will be charged, though we will waive that fee for those who cannot afford it. The conference will be open to all; you will not need to be delegated to attend by your union.
The committee can be reached at Canada@LabourStart.org but please don’t contact them about conference details until January unless you need an invitation letter in order to obtain a Canadian entry visa or unless you would like to volunteer to help with the conference. We promise to keep everyone on our mailing list updated as conference preparations continue. Look for regular updates as planning progresses.
