How to use CUPE’s workshop calendar

Our online workshop calendar has several features that you can use to make sure that you’re finding workshops that are useful for you.

1. Search by province
Some links to this calendar already sort the workshops by province. (If this is the case, you’ll see the province name in the page title.) Otherwise, you can narrow down using the choices on the left-hand side of the page to only show workshops in a specific province.

2. Search by workshop name
To search for a specific workshop name, enter key words from the workshop name in the search box on the left-hand side of the page.

3. Search by city
To find workshops offered in a specific city, scroll down on the left-hand side, and choose the city you want to search for.

4. Search by date
Find workshops offered in a specific month by choosing that month.

These search options combine together – as you add new search filters, it will also keep the ones you were already using, so that for example you can search for Bargaining workshops in Toronto in May. Filters that are currently being used will show up on the left-hand side of the page. To stop narrowing down your search, click the “x” link beside a filter in use to remove it.
