Over the next two years, Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan will have the opportunity to elect new provincial governments. This exciting event will give members from the prairies the skills, tools and networks to elect progressive politicians and to keep them accountable for their election promises.

Why attend?
• Learn from experts, like CUPE’s Senior Economist Angella MacEwan, how to debunk conservative talking points on inflation, wages, and the economy.
• Build your skills with in-depth training on the elements of a successful campaign.
• Leave feeling inspired by success stories, political keynotes, and a strong sense of solidarity.

The Prairie Political Summit will occur in Calgary, Alberta from January 25th to January 28th.

Join us to help make our union and movement even stronger!

See you in Calgary!

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
