Tuesday evening, Carlton Promotions was honoured to be present at the Agriculture Workers Alliance Awards Dinner, Four individuals were presented with awards in recognition of their efforts to bring awareness, rights and equality to migrant and domestic agriculture workers in Canada. Those individuals are Randy Richmond (Reporter - London Free Press), Carole Neault (Union Steward - TUAC Local 501), Josie Baker (Cooper Institute) and Rachel Notley (Premier of Alberta). We hope the cause of the AWA and the efforts of individuals like these can keep bringing positive change to Canada's workforce. Thank you for all you do and for allowing us to partake in this momentous event.
It's finally here! That time of year where we all march in support of fairness for workers. The first parade took place in December 1872, and on July 23, 1894, John Thompson delcared Labour Day an official holiday, making it the first Monday of September. Subsequent parades took place on this date with the modern parade being organized by the Toronto and York Region Labour Council. 144 years later we are keeping this tradition of unification strong, so let's get out there and show solidarity for one another.

Sporting a St. Patrick's Day Toque and Jacket, both Canadaian-Union made for some of our clients, Bob helped celebrate Irish Heritage here in Toronto. Even with the chill in the air, smiles and cheers were heard all around as thousands came out to watch the parade. Now that St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, Thursday, March 17, 2016, maybe we'll all get a taste of that famous luck of the Irish. SLAINTE!
We hope to honor this commemorative moment and support Irish heritage throughout the city. If you're able to do so this weekend, drop by the parade and show off your green side Sunday, March 13, 2016. The parade will begin at Bloor and St. George at 8:00 a.m. and continue along Bloor Street, down Yonge and finish on Queen Street at Nathan Philips Square. It's expected to take between one and one and a half hours.
