Join the Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade

The 29th annual Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade is almost here!

Since 1993, hundreds of people living across Canada, of various ages, skills and backgrounds have enjoyed an exciting and informative three-week stay in Cuba with the Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade.

The trip provides the opportunity to look at the gains and victories of the Cuban revolution, as well as see Cuba's challenges first hand, particularly the impacts of over 50 years of illegal economic blockade from the United States. The Che Brigade fulfills two main goals. On the one hand, it is a great way to show support for the struggle of the Cuban people to maintain their independence. On the other hand, it is an important opportunity for people from Canada to know and understand the dynamism of all aspects of life in Cuba.

The Cuban people, who are committed to maintaining their revolution and its great gains, receive the Brigade participants, known as "Brigadistas", with warmth and friendship. The fact that Brigadistas come from Canada to share friendship, reaffirms to many Cuban people that the social change they are carrying out is important, not only for their country, but for the entire world.

For more information, questions or to receive updates on the Che Guevara Brigade please email or call the Che Brigade coordinator Tyson Strandlund at or 250-883-7321.

You can also follow the Che Brigade on social media. We are on Instagram @cdnntwrkoncuba, Facebook at and on Twitter @CheVolBrigade.

The Che Guevara Brigade looks forward to travelling to Cuba later in 2023 and we hope you will join us!
