Canadian Labor Congress (CLC)

Nationwide association of labour unions in Canada, formed in 1956 by the merger of the Canadian counterparts to the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations, which merged in the same year (see AFL–CIO).

Today most of the 2.5 million unionized workers in English-speaking Canada are members of CLC-affiliated unions.
