The New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) is proud to be organizing virtual learning events from Tues. Aug. 4 to Fri. Aug. 7, 2020. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 20th edition of the Blair Doucet Youth Summer Camp (BDYSC) had to be postponed to 2021. We simply couldn’t go ahead without empowering our youth, hence the virtual youth learning sessions.
