A PARTY OF WORKING PEOPLE
Founded in 1961 from its predecessor, the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation (CCF – 1932 to 1961), the NDP is a democratic socialist party committed to the principles of equality, liberty, democracy, and global solidarity and peace.
Whether it was working to introduce universal health care and pensions, raising the minimum wage, increasing funding for education and child care, fighting homelessness and poverty, and protecting the environment, the NDP has always worked to get results for people.
Unlike the Liberals and Conservatives, the NDP is not a party of finance capital or Big Business. We are supported by wage earners, working families, labour unions, youth, seniors, and allies in the peace, anti-poverty, women’s and environmental movements.
