Dates of existence



The Labour History Provincial Specialist Association was established under the auspices of the British Columbia Teachers' Federation in 1976. The name of the organization was amended to the Labour History Association, BCTF in order to satisfy legal requirements. The Association produced a film, a manual and slide-sound program and ten issues of a journal, Labour History. The Association was disbanded as a result of reduced funding.

During an annual general meeting of the British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF) in March, 1976, sufficient interest was shown to make possible the formation of a Labour History Provincial Specialist Association (PSA) dedicated to the teaching of labour history in schools. With an individual membership of 106, the first general meeting of the Labour History PSA occurred in May 1976. On June 12, 1976, the BCTF voted official status to the Labour History PSA at its executive meeting. In order to sign legal contracts for some of its projects, the name was changed to Labour History Association, BCTF (LHA). The LHA was disbanded in 1984 by the BCTF, owing to a reduction in the amount of funding the BCTF was able to provide.
