Description:
The New Democratic Party Socialist Caucus is an unofficial, Toronto Star, June 19, 2011 left-wing faction within Canada's New Democratic Party.

Consequently, the Socialist Caucus also opposes Tony Blair's Third Way policies, claiming they alienate the working class.. The policies of the socialist caucus are similar to the Socialist Campaign Group in the United Kingdom however, unlike the SCG, the Socialist Caucus does not enjoy the public support of any elected parliamentarians.

The Socialist Caucus was founded in early 1998 in Toronto by political activists Barry Weisleder, Sean Cain, Jorge Hurtado, Joe Flexer and others who had been involved in Peter Kormos' unsuccessful 1996 campaign to lead the Ontario New Democratic Party. It soon had branches in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, as well as supporters in Manitoba, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Currently, it is active primarily in Ontario at both the federal and provincial levels but also has supporters in other provinces.

The NDP SC views itself as the successor to the Waffle of the 1960s and 1970s and a number of members in the Socialist Caucus were also in the NDP's Left Caucus and the Campaign for an Activist Party or CAP of the 1980s.
