Labour 150

For a century and a half working people have organized collectively here around a vision of economic and social justice. That epic journey will be celebrated over the coming year as we share the stories of those who came before us, and the lessons of solidarity and struggle that guide our movement today.

Through exploring this rich heritage we hope to inspire a new generation of activists who will continue to lead these efforts in the decades to come. Working people in Toronto have been on a remarkable journey since 1871. Those who started 150 years ago – seven generations – laid a solid foundation for justice in Canada’s largest urban centre. We honour their foresight and pledge to continue that legacy.
