  Communist Party of Canada
The party was originally organized in 1921, after the virtual collapse of the One Big Union, under the name of "The Workers' Party of Canada", and was affiliated with the Third Communist International, with headquarters in Moscow, Russia.
But gradually the real character of the aims of the Communist party, which contemplated the use of force in achieving revolution, came to be appreciated by the labour unions; and after a prolonged struggle between 1925 and 1929 the Communists were expelled from most of the regular labour organizations in Canada.
In 1928 the Communist party of Canada sent delegates to the congress of the Third International and the meeting of the Red International labour unions in Moscow.

 Hannah Middleton - Communist Parties Discuss Resistance to Capitalist Globalisation and War
Communist and Workers' Parties from all over the world, including the Communist Party of Australia, met in Athens on June 19 and 20 to exchange views and examine strategies in the fight against capitalist globalisation and war.
The Parties at the conference were largely agreed on their analysis of the imminent and great danger to the world as a result of corporate globalisation and the imperialist war drive.
The reservations and skepticism that certain parties express towards the main duty of the CPs, to form a distinct pole of cooperation, is not due to hesitation based on negative experiences which, in their view, appeared in the framework of the Communist International.

 Lenin and Canada
The campaign to establish the new party was the first broad public call upon Canadian radicals to turn their backs on the ideological confusion and the political nihilism of syndicalism and the sectarian sterility of the SPC and the SLP.
A Marxist convention was proposed; to replace Socialist Party sectarianism, syndicalist irresponsibility, and to replace the myth that secession was the only weapon by which reactionary bureaucracy in the trade unions could combated, by systematic revolutionary activity within the trade unions and in all working-class organizations.
Inspired and guided by Lenin, the founding convention of the Worker’s Party of Canada had turned away from the sectarianism and defeatism of the past, confidently to the future with the aim of proletarian unity in the struggle for socialism.

 An exchange of letters on Stalinism, Trotskyism and the Communist Party of Canada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
There is no doubt that the Stalinist communist parties (that is those who decided to stay under the sway of the CPSU) made serious errors in internal party democracy and economic policy and held back revolutionary forces around the world in the attempt to spare the Soviet Union further attacks on its existence.
At least from the German Communist Party's ignominious capitulation to Hitler in 1933 on, the CPSU and Comintern sought not just to constrain the struggles of the working class, but to sabotage and suppress them.
The CPC, on the other hand, seeks to tie the working class to a national program, by urging Canadian workers to make common cause with those sections of capital threatened by competition with larger and more-technically advanced foreign rivals and to defend the reactionary and outmoded Canadian nation-state.
