Founded in 1985, The Council of Canadians is Canada's pre-eminent citizens' watchdog organization, comprised of over 100,000 members and more than 70 Chapters across the country.
Strictly non-partisan, the Council lobbies Members of Parliament, conducts research, and runs national campaigns aimed at putting some of the country's most important issues into the spotlight: safeguarding our social programs, promoting economic justice, renewing our democracy, asserting Canadian sovereignty, advancing alternatives to corporate-style free trade, and preserving our environment.
The Council does not accept money from corporations or governments, and is sustained entirely by the volunteer energy and financial assistance of its members.
Our work at this political moment has three goals:
To help Canadians define ourselves and
our understanding of sovereignty and
democracy in relation to the rest of the
world in an era of increased U.S-Canada
tensions and increased pressure for deeper
To work with Canadians and people
around the world to reclaim the global and
local commons which are the shared heritage
of humanity and of the earth.
To create a compelling civil society
movement in search of social justice both
here in Canada and internationally whose
core mandate is the creation of
participatory , living democracy for all
the peoples of the world.
