Area Courses

The National Education Department offers 1 (one) and 3 (three) day courses in communities across the country. All courses are facilitated by other trained Unifor members, DL's (Discussion Leaders). 

These classes are designed specifically to bring education opportunities to members close to where they live and work, right in their communities. This makes it easier for members to attend and reduces costs for local unions.

Fall 2021

Unifor is cautiously offering in person Area School classes across the country. Each province will adhere to local COVID-19 Health mandates and reduced class sizes.

  • We are currently operating by Local Union Request (LUR)
  • We require 6 weeks notice
  • Local Unions, please contact us to set a course up
