Convention Documents (click on the links below):

The OFL will be holding its 12th Biennial Convention in the Grand Ballroom at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, 123 Queen Street West. The convention will commence with registration and pre-convention orientation on Sunday, November 24 and will officially begin at 9:30 am on Monday, November 25.

The theme of the convention is “Rising Together!” – a proud reflection on the past accomplishments of the labour movement in lifting all people up and an optimistic and confident declaration of labour’s commitment to pushing back against austerity and the neoliberal policies that are increasing inequality and threatening the rights and livelihoods of all workers in Canada.

International speakers will connect Canadian struggles to the global resistance against austerity while providing real alternatives that are emerging around the world.

The convention paper will present an action plan for a united labour movement and a bold commitment to deep organizing within every one of our communities.

Convention credentials have been forwarded to the financial secretary of each affiliate. The deadline for receiving credentials is midnight on November 12, 2013. The Credentials Committee will be unable to seat delegates if credentials are filed late.

Information on the labour council and equity caucuses will be sent directly to each delegate upon receipt of registration. Caucuses are for the purpose of electing representatives to the OFL Executive Board and they are open to self-identified members of the particular designated group who are convention delegates.

The deadline for receiving resolutions is October 23, 2013, and each resolution must be limited to 150 words or less.
