If you're considering a family vacation this summer think about applying for the CAW's Family Education Program in Port Elgin, Ontario.  The program is open to CAW members in good standing as well as their immediate family.

The CAW Family Education Program will feature three one-week English sessions in 2012.

The dates for these sessions are:

Participants discuss current economic and social issues from a worker's point of view, as well as the history, structure and policies of the CAW. Also featured are guest speakers who will examine subjects touching the lives of workers every day such as our changing society, globalization, the health care system, coalition building, human rights and equality issues, among others.

There are also programs for teenagers and children and day care for younger children and infants at the centre.
Food and lodging at the centre is free, but participants must contribute their time.
