Who We Are

London and District Labour Council members work in the public and private sectors: at the brewery, in education, social services, the public service, construction and much more.

The labour council brings these members together every month for regular meetings, and carries out events and activities between meetings. The LDLC meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month, except July and August, at 7:00 pm at the Tolpuddle Co-operative (or virtually due to the pandemic).

We are a chartered body of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), representing 3.5 million unionized Canadians. The LDLC was founded in 1957 as has been a vital part of the London community ever since.
