CLAC offers a workplace wellness program to members who have negotiated it in their collective agreement. The program was created in BC in 2009 and is slowly expanding in other provinces where CLAC represents workers.  When negotiating salaries and benefits for its members, the CLAC takes into account the “profitability of the company”. The association supports the open store as an expression of the principle of free association and balance between individual and collective interests. It represents more than 58,000 workers in some 550 collective agreements across Canada; More than 15,000 of its workers are in Alberta.   For 25 years, CLAC has provided financial assistance to workers around the world through its solidarity residents, who are made up of CLAC members who are not directly represented by the union, but who believe in the work it does. The CLAC Foundation has expanded efforts and capacity to assist fighting workers and their families. From now on, CLAC, its members, signatory companies and the general public can make donations for various purposes through the Foundation. Projects include training artisans in areas affected by natural disasters, supporting the China Labour Bulletin, helping workers in Canada prepare for reintegration into the labour market, and raising awareness of issues affecting workers around the world. Health and wellness services address needs such as vision, dentistry and prescription medications. life and death insurance by accident and dismemberment; and a staff and family assistance programme to help with personal difficulties.
Coverage rates vary between collective agreements.  In 1954, CLAC applied for certifications in British Columbia (BC) and Ontario. The BC Labour Relations Board granted certification to a CLAC resident, but the Ontario Labour Relations Board refused certification due to a technical peculiarity. . . .
