Help Design A Future That Works on June 12 & 13, 2024

BC Community Discussions to Build a Future that Works

We’re coming to a community near you this spring for a province-wide discussion hosted by the BCFED, member unions and your local Labour Council.

Our environment and economy are changing. Our jobs and the communities we live in are being hit hard.

Nobody’s immune from the impacts: workplace closures, wildfire evacuations, cold stress on construction sites, heat stress in schools and restaurant kitchens, and much more.

We need a meaningful plan to tackle these urgent issues affecting our families, our communities and our livelihoods — a plan that puts workers front and centre, and leaves nobody behind. And to do it right, we need to hear from you.

Please come to a community discussion near you, to help develop a worker and community-centred Climate Justice and Jobs Plan for BC. Join us to build a future that works for you, your community and future generations. More information here.

Attention energy and resource workers

We know that energy and resource workers are bearing the brunt of these changes, so we invite you to attend a small focus group or interview in your community if you work in these sectors. Please contact Trish at to sign up.

As well as the communities listed above, we’ll be coming to Burns Lake, Cumberland, Duncan, Elk Valley, Fort St. John, Fraser Lake, Houston, Kitimat, Merritt, Port Alberni, Princeton, Sparwood, Vanderhoof and Vernon — and we’ll wrap up in Chilliwack for our Regional Conference in mid-June.
