Marie Clare Walker
Workers unite! Hear from the Secretary-Treasurer of Canada's largest labour organization

Ms. Walker rose rapidly through the ranks of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), becoming CUPE Ontario’s Equity Vice-President and her union’s first-ever national Diversity Vice-President.

Marie made history in 2002 when she was elected as the youngest person ever elected to the position of Executive Vice-President of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), serving in that capacity for five terms before making history in May 2017, being elected as the first-ever racialized woman to serve as CLC Secretary-Treasurer.
