Council of Canadians

http://www.canadians.org

The Council of Canadians was founded in 1985. It is a non-partisan, non-profit citizen’s watchdog organization comprised of over 100,000 members. The Council receives no funding from corporations or governments, but is funded through the financial assistance of its members. Sustained by volunteers, the Council has established itself as a voice for Canadian economic sovereignty. Throughout the years, it has lobbied against free trade, the introduction of genetically-modified foods, and the bulk export of Canada’s fresh water.

The Council typically undertakes a variety of activities, including lobbying Members of Parliament, conducting research, and running national campaigns to shine a spotlight on key public policy issues of concern to Canadians. These campaigns include the Health Campaign, the Trade Campaign, the Water Campaign, and the Biotech Campaign. Another area of the Council’s focus: Canada-U.S. relations. Through all aspects of its work, the Council is ultimately committed to building a stronger civil society.
