A Fresh Perspective 

United Way BC and the CLC Pacific Labour Partnership have reimagined Labour Appreciation Night to accommodate our expanding reach across various regions of British Columbia. While the essence of this event—awards, networking, and fellowship—remains unaltered, it will now authentically mirror the essence of the labour movement, emphasizing collective impact over formality.
