Living Wage Vancouver Townhall

February 26, 2024 at
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM PST
Maritime Labour Centre 1880 Triumph Street Vancouver, BC V5L 4C4

Earlier this year, Mayor Ken Sim and his ABC majority voted in a closed-door meeting to retract Vancouver’s commitment to paying a living wage.

Since then, the affordability crisis facing Vancouver residents has only intensified. The cost of essential goods continues to climb, placing a heavy burden on working families. It’s time for the city to get back on track with ensuring living wages for working people.

Join us for a Living Wage Townhall on February 26th. Hear from affected workers, economist Iglika Ivanova (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – BC Office) and Councillor Christine Boyle. Let’s speak up together and tell Vancouver City Council to do the right thing and recertify as a living wage employer for 2024.

DATE: Monday, February 26th
TIME: 7:30PM-9:00PM
PLACE: Maritime Labour Centre Auditorium, 1880 Triumph St. / Zoom option available.

This is a family-friendly event. All are welcome.
