Over 40 courses are offered at the Unifor Education Centre in Port Elgin. Most courses are one week in length. We also hold a four-week core program. This is an incredible facility on the shores of Lake Huron – comfortable classrooms, beautiful bedrooms, a fitness centre, bar, alcohol-free cafe, superb dining, and gorgeous surroundings. Members from across the country come together at the Unifor Education Centre to discuss, debate and learn about issues that matter to workers, and to build skills for taking on employers and changing society.
