History

The Social Democratic Party of Canada (SDPC) was a Marxist organization that formed in 1911 as a result of a split from the Socialist Party of Canada over affiliation with the Socialist International. The SDPC was affiliated with the International Socialist Bureau, and had a paper entitled Cotton’s Weekly (1908-1915), continued by the Canadian Forward (1916-1918). Prominent Ontario members of the SDPC included James Simpson, a mayor of Toronto in the 1930s. Most of the SDPC members joined the Communist Party of Canada in 1921 or the CCF in the 1930s.
