Greetings,

The Canadian Labour Congress created the Carol McGregor award to recognize the outstanding contributions of a worker with a disability who has made a significant and lasting impact in their union and/or the community by promoting and defending the rights of persons with disabilities.

I am pleased to announce that nominations are once again open for the Carol McGregor CLC Disability Rights Award. Attached is the nomination form. We encourage you to distribute it widely and consider nominating an activist from your affiliate. You can also submit the form on the CLC website, linked here. Any union member or organization may nominate a candidate.

All nominations must be received by the deadline, November 5, 2021. Complete nominations must be submitted via the form on the CLC website, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

2021 marks the tenth anniversary of the Carol McGregor CLC Disability Rights Award. As workers around the world continue to experience the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, this award is animportant opportunity to recognize the efforts and leadership of those advocating for disability justice within the labour movement and our broader communities. Let us celebrate the role of unions in promoting equity and inclusion for workers with disabilities by recognizing those who have championed this important work.

In solidarity,

Bea Bruske

President
