Alternatives North is a social justice coalition operating in the Northwest Territories.
Its ranks include representatives of churches, labour unions, environmental organizations, women and family advocates, anti-poverty groups and committed citizens.
Sometimes referred to as the NWT’s “unofficial opposition”, Alternatives North takes the grassroots approach to democratic change. This alliance of interests provides a forum and a voice for issues analysis, popular action and social change. In 2015, Alternatives joined the local chapter of the Council of Canadians to work towards a common Front.
The UNW, PSAC North and the SJF are proud supporters of Alternatives North.
