Through its work, LAIG presents Canadians with both an analysis of social and economic injustices and opportunities for action by focussing on the rol of liberation movements, mass organizations, trade unions, and the church in the process of liberation.
The Group's activities include public education through contact with the labour movement, churches, schools and the media. They have audio-visual material available to the public and have organized speaking tours by authorities onLatin America and Latin Americans seeking Canadian solidarity. Support has been provided to liberation movements and humanitarian organization as an expression of Canadian solidarity.
