Remembering BC working people

lhc-021-1024x446-compressorThe British Columbia Labour Heritage Centre is inviting people to participate in its latest project, “Remembering Working People: Plaques Around the Province Project.”

Project goals: identify and catalogue existing memorials and install a new series of cast bronze plaques documenting events, actions, episodes, movements, experiences, groups, individuals or places that have not been recognized to date.

“This is an exciting project that will increase public awareness of the history of working people in British Columbia in a permanent way,” LHC chair Ken Novakowski said.

The LHC is reaching out to as many labour and community groups as possible to fulfill these goals. The focus is on BC regions outside the urban centers and anyone can submit a nomination.
