Rideau Institute Congratulates CEP on “Best Cyberunion” Award for CEPLive.ca

(Ottawa) The Rideau Institute extended congratulations to the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada National Office this week for being named “Best Cyberunion” by the Canadian Association of Labour Media (CALM).

CEP successfully undertook an ambitious project called CEPLive.ca to deliver the proceedings of its 2010 national convention live over the Internet to its members and the public. In addition to being able to watch keynote presentations in real time, and in either official language, members also participated in an interactive campaign workshop, for the first time.

“CEP’s pioneering use of the Internet has set the bar at a new high for online engagement of members and the public,” said Steven Staples, President of the Rideau Institute. The Institute provided support to CEP’s communications team in the design and operation of CEPLive.ca.

The Canadian Association of Labour Media is a network of union publications and editors. The major affiliates of the Canadian Labour Congress set up CALM in 1976. The annual CALM Awards recognize excellence in union publications and productions. Entries are judged by independent experts in a variety of categories and classes.
