National Leadership

The CEIU has a total of 8 geographic regions across Canada. Each region is organized in a way that works best for its locals, but all have at least one conference of local presidents per year. In addition to an annual conference, many have a regional executive body to guide activities throughout the year.

The CEIU National Executive is the union’s senior leadership group. Contact information for its members is set out below.
