The Labour History Project is a group of committed BC teachers — currently teaching and retired — who prepare lesson content on labour history for the BC school curriculum.

We are in the process of translating the majority of these lesson plans into French.

La plupart de ces plans de cours sont en cours de traduction en français.

This project operates in partnership with the BC Teachers’ Federation.
