The Canadian Office and Professional Employees
COPE is a national labour union organization made up of 2 regional
Councils and 39 Local unions comprising tens of thousands of
members in several provinces across Canada. Our members are mostly
office employees, technical and professional employees and sales
representatives both in the private and public sectors.
COPE has been established in Canada since 1933 and is affiliated to
the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC)
, the largest labour
organization in Canada with approximately 3,000,000 members.
The aim and purpose of COPE is to provide to our members the
assurance of gaining a measure of dignity and of security and a
decent standard of living. We encourage the full democratic
participation of all our members both within our union structures
as well as in society in general.
Through the years COPE has developed a solid expertise in union and
professional representation of our members. Our regional Councils
and Local unions offer a vast array of services including the
study, safeguard and promotion of the economic, educational,
cultural and social interests of our members, especially in
collective bargaining activities and the enforcement of collective
agreements. Regardless of the sector of activity, the dynamism and
strength of our union are instrumental in making our organization a
proud and militant union.
Welcome to our family!
