Word from the president
The Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union
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!
The National President
