Dates of existence



The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) was founded in Calgary in 1932 by a number of socialist, labour, agrarian, and co-operative groups with the aims of economic reform. With the signing of the Regina Manifesto (1933), the movement became an electoral political party and enjoyed great success in the province of Saskatchewan where it formed the provincial government for several years. The CCF also enjoyed limited success in Ontario (Official Opposition in 1943), as well as on the federal scene. In 1961, the CCF was succeeded by the New Democratic Party (NDP) after forming an alliance with the Canadian Labour Congress.
