Canadian Committee on Labour History

Welcome to the website of the Canadian Committee on Labour History

The Canadian Committee on Labour History is open to anybody interested in studying and promoting all aspects of working-class and labour history. The Committee defines working-class and labour history in the broadest terms and encourages study of working-class communities, culture, ethnicity, family life, gender, sexuality, migration, ideology, politics and organization.

It recognizes the value of a diversity of disciplinary and theoretical approaches to the study of history and encourages open and active discussion and debate. As well, it aims to encourage the inclusion of working-class history in school curricula, through institutions of public history, and within the educational programs of labour and community organizations.

We invite you to explore decades of innovative scholarship in the pages our journal Labour/Le Travail and the CCLH Books Series. You can also find information on the Eugene A. Forsey Prize and our annual workshop, as well as a link to the Working Histories labour and working-class history portal.

The Newswire highlights recent developments in labour history and current labour issues, as well as information on upcoming conferences, events and happenings in the field.

Please contact the committee should you have any questions.
