Strategic Plan (2016-2019)

​As the Labour Council celebrates 145 years of working for justice in Toronto and York Region, we look back on a remarkable journey that working people have taken. Over those many years we have learned important lessons from decades of struggle and success.  Today working people face immense pressure from the economic and political forces that seek to roll back those gains. Time and again the labour movement has mustered its strength to fend off attacks, sometimes suffering defeats but often winning tough fights. Recently the Labour Council spearheaded the efforts to engage our members to defeat Tim Hudak’s agenda. That experience showed the need for a much deeper relationship between the Council and its affiliates, activists and social justice allies.
