Council of Canadians
As a government and corporate watchdog, the Council offers a critical voice on key national issues. Since 2004, the Council has focused on fighting deeper economic integration with the United States. This includes building popular opposition to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, an agreement reached by Canada, the U.S. and Mexico in 2005, that is paving the way for Canada to integrate our security measures with those of the United States, surrender control of our energy supplies, sell off our water, and harmonize our medical drug testing policies with lower U.S. standards.

TheCouncil of Canadians has run highly influential citizen campaigns against cutbacks and changes to Canada's system of public pensions, the proposed mergers of four of the country's biggest banks, and the introduction of Bovine Growth Hormone into the nation's milk supply. The Council has also worked with groups and individuals across the country to fight the alarming concentration of media ownership in Canada. More recently, the Council has launched campaigns to prevent the bulk export of Canada's fresh water and to protect Canada's public health care system from privatization.
