Welcome to the BC Teachers’ Federation online museum!
In January 2017, the BC Teachers’ Federation celebrated its 100th anniversary with special events, commemorative publications, art works, song and dance. Creating our online museum was just one way we chose to mark this important milestone.
Within the virtual walls of our museum, you’ll find stories of strikes and solidarity to be sure, but also stories of people and places that played important roles in the history of public schooling in our province. We’ve tried to capture diverse voices in ways that visitors will find engaging, and we hope you enjoy browsing through our collections of political cartoons, protest songs, publications, photos, and more.
The exhibits depict our collective struggles in building BC’s public school system, which today stands among the finest in the world. And the lessons learned in a century of teaching and learning offer much food for thought as we go into our second century as a union of professionals.
Have fun exploring our museum!
