Communist Party of Trinidad and Tobago, a pro-Albanian marxist-leninist political party in Trinidad and Tobago. The party was founded in August 1979. One source claims it was founded by Hardial Bains, the leader of Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist). CPTT published Class Struggle.

Many of the members of this Party renounced their hard-line communist stances by the time the 1980s was over, coinciding with the Fall of the Soviet Union. Former members Michael Als and Wade Mark were involved in party politics in the late 1990s. Wade Mark is a member of the executive of the United National Congress. Michael Als was a UNC candidate for the 2000 election.
