South Asian Labour History Project
The BC Labour Heritage Centre has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the South Asian Studies Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley to develop a module on South Asian BC Labour History.
The project is part of the South Asian Canadian Legacy Project, supported by a 1.14 million dollar contribution from the Province of BC.
The one-year project will present the history of South Asian workers in British Columbia, with a focus on organized labour, union membership and activism.
The project will also address non-unionized workers in BC’s labour force and questions of racial exclusion and choice in union membership.
