The Socialist Labour Party was a political party in Canada that was formed by Canadian supporters of the ideas of American socialist Daniel De Leon and the Socialist Labor Party of America. The party never won any seats. The party ran only a small number of candidates (listed below), all of whom placed last in their respective elections.

The party dissolved in 2005 following the accidental death of its national secretary, Doug Irving.[1]
