WHY A FOUNDATION?
Across the globe, workers and their families struggle to survive. Some have suffered devastating natural disasters. Others toil under dangerous, unjust working conditions and are persecuted when they speak out. Some just need a leg up.
CLAC has been helping workers in Canada for 60 years, and around the world for 30. Through the CLAC Foundation, the efforts and ability to aid struggling workers and their families have been expanded. Now, CLAC, its members, signatory companies, and the general public can come together to make a difference in the lives of workers around the world.
Together, we can fund training for tradespeople in areas hit by natural disasters. We can provide aid to workers suffering dangerous working conditions. We can help workers in Canada prepare to re-enter the workforce. And we can raise awareness about the issues affecting workers around the world.
The CLAC Foundation is operated by a board of volunteers and is committed to ensuring over 95 percent of all donations are spent directly on the causes we support.
