AUPE members are encouraged to visit Alberta’s Provincial Archive in Edmonton to take in a new exhibit detailing labour’s role in Alberta’s growth and prosperity. The People Who Built Alberta: A Centennial for Alberta Workers will be on display at the Archive from Sept. 5 to Dec. 21.
The exhibit was designed by the Alberta Labour History Institute, and features artifacts that detail labour history from First Nations social economies, agricultural settlement and the railway-building era, through coal and to the present.
The Provincial Archives of Alberta is located at 8555 Roper Road (corner of 86 Street and 51 Avenue) in Edmonton. It is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with extended hours on Wednesday to 9 p.m. Admission is free.
