Welcome to the New Westminster & District Labour Council website.
The New Westminster & District Labour Council (NWDLC) is a community-based central labour organization representing trade union members at the local level. We are a chartered organization of the Canadian Labour Congress, Canada’s national voice for workers and their families.
Our goal is to ensure that our communities and our elected representatives at all levels of government in Canada respond to the needs of people and families.
