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 fonds was donated to the University of Manitoba in 2002.
