Party for the Commonwealth of Canada

The Party for the Commonwealth of Canada was a Canadian political party formed by Canadians who supported the ideology of U.S. politician Lyndon LaRouche in the 1984, 1988 and 1993 elections.

In the 1988 election, party leader Gilles Gervais led a slate of 58 candidates campaigning against the monarchy, hemispheric free trade, dollarization of Latin American economies, and "financial oligarchy".

The party never won any seats. It was also known as the Party for the Commonwealth-Republic. It now operates as the Committee for the Republic of Canada.
