Every year, political, grassroots and labour organizers from across the country meet at CanRoots to learn from each other's victories, to skill up and to get ready to make change in the year ahead.
The next CanRoots West will be in Vancouver in Spring 2019.
CanRoots focuses on four streams: Field Organizing, Campaign Strategy & Messaging, Digital Campaigning & Tech, and Building Inclusive Movements. Each CanRoots weaves together inspirational case studies and practical skills training from each stream.
CanRoots West was hosted in Vancouver on unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Territory in 2014, 2016, and 2017. see a bit about what CanRoots West 2016 was like here, and our 2017 conference schedule here.
We're excited to bring CanRoots West back next year as an annual event. We're skipping 2018 so that we can move CanRoots West back to the Spring. In 2017, CanRoots West was in the Fall. We're moving to the Spring to avoid conflicting with federal, municipal, and soon to be provincial, fixed election dates which all happen in the Fall.
