British Columbia: An Untold History, Labour + Persistence British Columbia: An Untold History, Labour + Persistence

Explores the transformative history of labour and the fight for equality in British Columbia. The first paid workers in B.C. were local First Nations, followed by Chinese and Japanese migrants. Black Americans who crossed the border were promised freedom by Governor James Douglas, and they became farmers and entrepreneurs. Robber barons began exploiting labourers, mobilizing racialized workers to form unions after being shut-out of white organizations. Despite the discrimination, First Nations, Japanese, Chinese, Black immigrants, and women enlisted in high numbers during both World Wars. After returning as war vets, many continued to fight for equal rights in the home they helped build. This legacy reverberated across communities and generations, changing the culture and infrastructure of B.C. forever.

Titles included in British Columbia: An Untold History: 

  • Change + Resistance:  Uncovers the Indigenous resistance to oppression in British Columbia. First Nations persevered through years of brutality and criminalization -- remembering this history is an act of refusal to be erased.
  • Migration + Resilience:  Reveals the immigrant narratives of resilience that define British Columbia. Asian migrants, the Doukhobors, and American war resisters catalyzed social movements that still continue today.
  • Nature + Co-Existence:  Examines how the history of British Columbia is inseparably fused with the history of natural resources. First Nations have worked with non-Indigenous environmentalists to co-exist and protect the land.
