COPE-SEPB’s triennial convention is taking place June 2nd to 4th, 2022 in Vancouver, BC at the Westin Bayshore Hotel near beautiful Stanley Park. The convention will be preceded by equity caucuses on June 1st.
The theme of our convention is “It Starts with Equity”. The focus of our National Executive and Canadian Equity Council this term has been how to engage and include members of equity seeking groups within our membership more meaningfully. Significant constitutional changes are being proposed to ensure voices from equity seeking groups are included in our national union at the highest levels. Resolutions will also be brought forward on how the National union can assist locals and councils to do more equity work at the grassroots level.
Convention is the highest decision-making body in our national union, and both elects and sets the direction for the National Executive for the next three years.
