52nd Annual Pacific Northwest Labour History Conference

In light of growing concerns around the spread of COVID-19, the Labour History Conference “Resistance and Resilience” scheduled for May 8 -10, 2020 at SFU in Vancouver has been CANCELLED.

This was both a difficult and easy decision.  In short, the health and wellness of our participants, facilitators and presenters are our highest priority while we have closely monitored new developments and updates from the Office of the Provincial Medical Health Officer, the BC Centre for Disease Control and the Ministry of Health.

Given that many of our participants are 65 or older, and that about half would be travelling from Washington or Oregon, it is necessary to cancel to ensure we do not put anyone at risk or add to the anxiety around this pandemic.
