Unity (Canada)

Unity or Progressive Unity was the name used in Saskatchewan, Canada, by a popular front party initiated by the Communist Party of Canada for the 1938 Saskatchewan and 1940 Canadian election.

Under this label, two Saskatchewan MLAs were elected and Dorise Nielson was elected to the House of Commons. Nielson was a supporter of the Communist Party and ran for re-election in 1945 federal election as a Labour Progressive Party candidate (the name adopted by the Communist Party after it was banned) and was defeated.
