Social Democratic Party (Canada) (1911-)
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.
Scope and content
The two booklets, with covers and dues stamps, were issued by the Dominion Executive Committee of the SDPC to Ted Grydzian (spelling varies) of the Ukrainian Local No. 81 in Welland, Ont.
