Looking to expand your horizons as a labour union activist? Want to find ways to broaden and strengthen the social justice movement in Canada? If so, then the Labour College of Canada  just might be for you!

Since 1963, the Labour College of Canada has been a foundational institution for labour education. Re-designed in 2011, the four-week intensive program offers in-depth analysis on a variety of issues relevant to working people today by offering courses like economics, the history of work and the theory and practice of unions, among others. The program also focuses on building research, leadership and communications skills and inspires confidence among participants to play a more active role in the broader social justice movement.

The 2013 edition of the four-week program (broken down into two 2-week sessions) will be held at the CAW Family Education Centre  in Port Elgin, Ontario and is open to all union members. The CAW has 4 scholarships available that cover tuition, travel, expenses as well as room and board.
Successful applicants will join a rich group of current and upcoming leaders of CLC affiliated unions across Canada, both in the public and private sector.

Session 1 is scheduled to run from May 4-18, 2013; Session 2 is scheduled to run from August 11-23, 2013.
