The National Council of the Canadian Communist Movement (Marxist-Leninist) held a very important meeting. This meeting was held at a time when the working and oppressed people of the whole world are proudly celebrating the first centenary of the birth of Great Lenin and the first anniversary of the Ninth Congress of the glorious Communist Party of China. At this meeting, the National Council unanimously and rigorously voted to dissolve the Canadian Communist Movement (Marxist-Leninist) and its National Council, and in its place declared the formation of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) based on Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought and announcing the formation of its Central Organizing Committee. The Central Organizing Committee immediately began its activities.

Present at the meeting were also fraternal delegates from Irish Communist Movement (Marxist-Leninist), English Communist Movement (Marxist-Leninist), American Communist Workers Movement (Marxist-Leninist), Les Intellectuels et Ouvriers Patriotes du Quebec – Mouvement Communiste Quebecois (marxiste-leniniste) and the Ad-Hoc Committee of the Hindustani Ghadar Party.

The formation of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) is yet another victory for Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought and a first historic step towards smashing U.S. imperialism and Canadian monopoly capital and towards the building of an independent and socialist Canada under the dictatorship of the proletariat.
