The Canadian Freelance Union is a Community Chapter branch of Unifor, and is a different type of Union.

Membership is open to everyone who identifies as a freelance worker in the media, communications or information sector who have a connection to Canada and/or the Indigenous Peoples within the boundaries of Canada. We represent some of the best freelance communicators in the country as well as those just getting started in their careers.

As a community chapter of Unifor, we benefit from the experience, skills, and power of Unifor (Canada’s largest private-sector union with 310,000 members). We also have the independence and flexibility to be highly responsive to issues as they arise and to use fresh approaches to connect and engage members across the country. Help us take action.

In addition to their paid work, many of our members participate in union activities to improve the conditions of—as well as raise awareness and respect for—the work that freelancers do. Get involved.
