The Atlantic Canada Regional Council takes an active part in the community and strives to improve the communities it operates in.

Local 1588 members held a fundraiser for Brookland Elementary School in Sydney, NS after flooding damaged parts of the school in October 2016.

The ACRC gives donations to several local and regional organizations and participates in many community events across Atlantic Canada. We believe investing in our communities improves the health and well-being for everyone.
