About Us

The NWT Chapter

Formed in 2013, the NWT Chapter of the Council of Canadians provides a forum for active and democratic citizen engagement in social and environmental issues of concern and interest to the NWT.  We also provide a conduit to regional and national offices of the Council of Canadians so that we can collaborate on issues of shared concern.

Following our launch in May 2013 the NWT Chapter released a discussion paper outlining possible priorities for the chapter. We welcome your feedback.

If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact us.

The Council of Canadians

Founded in 1985, the Council of Canadians is Canada’s largest citizens’ organization, with members and chapters across the country. We work to protect Canadian independence by promoting progressive policies on fair trade, clean water, energy security, public health care, and other issues of social and economic concern to Canadians.

We develop creative campaigns to put some of the country’s most important issues into the spotlight. We work with a network of over 70 volunteer chapters to organize speaking tours, days of action, conferences and demonstrations. We also produce research reports, create popular materials, and work with individuals and organizations across the country and around the world. We do all of this to ensure that governments know the kind of Canada we want.

The Council does not accept money from corporations or governments, and is sustained entirely by the volunteer energy and financial assistance of its members.
