Regional Councils meet at least once a year, with every local eligible to send delegates to discuss and debate important issues in their regions such as provincial labour laws and policies, and regional economic and social concerns. Regional Councils will also spearhead various campaigns and activities.
ARC 2021 will be entirely virtual. Details can be found in the ARC 2021 Call Letter.

If you have not received your entitlements and log-in credentials, or are having difficulties with your online registration, please contact Laura Vickery at @email.
