Name of creator
Since its founding in May 1921, Canada's party of Socialism, the Communist Party of Canada (CPC) has been in the forefront of left wing Canadian politics, fighting for jobs, democratic rights, Canadian independence, peace, socialism and working class internationalism. The CPC is a voluntary organization of like-minded Canadians based on the principles of Marxism-Leninism whose ultimate goal is the creation of a Canadian socialist society. The party strives to promote the broadest possible unity of the working class and its allies against all forms of oppression and to bring all these forces into the daily struggles of working women and men for jobs, social justice and democratic advance.
The collection was accumulated by University of Manitoba graduate student, Mike Butt, during the course of his research. The collection was then donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Mike Butt in 2000.
Scope and content
The collection consists of printed materials related to the Communist Party of Canada and the Labour Progressive Party. These include reports, pamphlets, briefs to royal commissions, convention materials, newspapers, election handouts, constitutions, and writings by such notables as William Kashtan and Leslie Morrison.
