Ahoy! We Explore Vancouver’s Working Waterfront

 In News

We had the great pleasure in November to host 80+ members of the Association of Senior Anthropologists on a BC Labour History Boat Tour of Burrard Inlet.

Our guests were attending the American Anthropological Association conference in Vancouver . We showed them Vancouver’s working waterfront aboard the MPV Constitution, and discussed the history of unions, labour, class, ethnicity and gender in BC.

Contact us if your union or organization is interested in a similar tour
