The Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012. The AFL’s first century of fighting for the rights of working people provides a good perspective from which to look back at the contributions of working men and women to the history of Alberta.
Often neglected in histories of the province, it was the unsung toil and overlooked skills of Alberta men, women and children who built the mines, mills, cities and factories, dug the coal, harvested the wheat, and maintained the homes, thus creating the rich social and physical environment we enjoy today.
Until the end of March, 2013 the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre is hosting a travelling exhibit of photos and stories of Alberta’s working class.
