Communist Party of Canada (Saskatchewan)


Communist Party of Canada (Saskatchewan)

The Communist Party of Canada (Saskatchewan) was a communist political party in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It was the Saskatchewan section of the Communist Party of Canada. It nominated candidates for the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan in provincial elections between 1938 and 1986.

The Communists ran three popular front candidates under the name Unity in 1938, electing two MLAs. They also ran two candidates under the Communist label, who failed to get elected. After the Communist Party was banned in the early years of World War II, it established the Labour Progressive Party as its legal face, and ran candidates under that name throughout the 1940s and 1950s. It reverted to the Communist Party label in 1960.
