Coverage rates vary between collective agreements.  When negotiating salaries and benefits for its members, the CLAC takes into account the “economic viability of the company”. The association supports the open store as an expression of the principle of free association and balance between individual and collective interests. It represents more than 58,000 workers in some 550 collective agreements across Canada; More than 15,000 of its workers are in Alberta.  Members focus on Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan in sectors such as construction, social services, health, emergency services, transportation, retail, education, hospitality and manufacturing. CLAC is seen by international trade organisations as a threat to trade unions and as a threat to collective action on behalf of workers. Unions often claim that the CLAC is a union of companies and that many of its provisions are company-oriented and misleading to workers.  CLAC then takes the position that the “traditional” unions are responsible for the attacks on themselves.   CLAC offers a workplace wellness program to members who have negotiated it in their collective agreement. The program was created in BC in 2009 and is slowly expanding in other provinces where CLAC represents workers.  Frans Fuykschot was appointed General Secretary of the CLAC and opened the union`s first office in Hamilton, Ontario.
Soon after, the first issue of The Guide, CLAC`s official magazine, was released.  Although the founders of CLAC were Christians and wanted their union to be based on social-Christian principles, they did not require the members to be Christians.  In two years, CLAC began to apply for its first certifications. The RSP Group is managed by Great-West Life and is only available to members in Western Canada.  The Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) is a union representing workers in the construction, health and food industries. It was created in 1952 to represent workers on the basis of “christian social principles”. The union says its approach to labour relations develops workers` sense of responsibility, participation, responsibility and dignity. It opposes what it calls the anti-democratic, opposing and monopolistic practices of the workers` movement.  The providers are Standard Life, Sun Life, RBC Insurance, AIG, Green Shield and Ceridian Lifeworks. . A group of Canadians, many of whom were Dutch immigrants who arrived in Canada after the Second World War, decided to form a Union with the principles of dignity, justice, responsibility and respect and allowed freedom of association.
These immigrants were accustomed to the European model of labour relations, with freedom of association among a large number of trade unions. .
