ocial progress is the weight of laws designed to alleviate human suffering.
In Canada, the Labour movement has been in the forefront of groups
seeking such legislation, right from its earliest days.
Pensions, health insurance, the shorter workday, a living wage, the
right to organize - all these were fought for by workers in unions or
trying to form unions.
This web site traces the history of Canadian Labour with the aim of showing how it served its members while forcing broader reforms on our nation.
