Errol Black Chair Brunch 2022

Join us in-person for our Annual EBC Fundraising Brunch 2022!

Each year, in honour of the work of Errol Black,  we gather with amazing people in our community, visit, eat a lovely brunch but also to celebrate individuals in our midst who have done amazing work.   In 2012 we held our first Errol Black Chair Fundraising Brunch.  Now 10 years later, we are honouring the work of Jim Silver. Armine Yalnizyan, econonmist and author will be the keynote speaker.  This year also marks the 25th Anniversary of the CCPA Manitoba office!

The Manitoba office of the CCPA, established the Errol Black Chair in Labour Issues. This full-time labour research position as a means of honouring Errol’s many contributions to the labour movement and to the CCPA. It honours Errol in a way that carries on the work that has for decades been his passion: doing the highly skilled research and writing that promotes to trade union members and to the general public the many virtues of a healthy trade union movement. Niall Harney holds the position of the Errol Black Chair at the CCPA.

This year, the Brunch will resume as an in-person only event at the Fairmont Hotel.
