In a world where employers and governments are pursuing an agenda of globalization that places corporate profits ahead of the interests of working people, their families, their communities and the environment, it is very important that the CEP play a role on the international stage.
In every sector and in almost every workplace, CEP members are directly affected by global corporations and the global economic and social context. To effectively represent our members and protect and improve our collective agreements, working conditions and living standards, in an increasingly globalized economy, CEP needs to build links solidarity with working people internationally.
Our international solidarity work is an expression of CEP's commitment to social unionism, which integrates our union into broader coalitions to strengthen our efforts to fight for the rights and interests of working people and for social and economic justice. It is, therefore, an integral part of the union's program and activities, including the CEP Humanity Fund and participation in global social justice and human rights initiatives.
CEP is affiliated with the Union Network International  (UNI), International Federation of Journalists  (IFJ), and IndustriALL Global Union . As a member of the Canadian Labour Congress  (CLC), CEP is also represented internationally by the CLC and the International Trade Union Congress  (ITUC) which now represents 175 million members in 151 countries.

The Humanity Fund
The CEP Humanity Fund is an independent, member-supported, non-profit charitable foundation established by CEP to help people facing disasters and poverty in Canada and around the world.
On the international level, the Humanity Fund assists worker, community and women's organizations in developing countries to promote decent work and improve working conditions and living standards. Like the International Labour Organization  (ILO), we believe that decent work is the only sustainable way out of poverty and is fundamental to building equitable development, democracy and social cohesion.
