This year’s Conference featured the first-ever meeting of the Canadian Equity Council, several high-profile guest speakers from the labour movement and political scene including: Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress; The Hon. Harry Bains, B.C. Minister of Labour; Irene Lanzinger, President of the BC Federation of Labour; Peter Hellberg from the Swedish Union, Unionen; and Véronique Picard from Quebec Native Women.

In addition to discussing the major issues surrounding the labour movement today and the updates from the resolutions from the 2016 National Convention, the key themes explored at the Mid-Term Conference centered on domestic violence and reconciliation.
