About This Resource

Lesson activities to accompany the vignette "Canning Salmon” from the acclaimed Knowledge Network series; Working People: A History of Labour in British Columbia produced by Landrock Entertainment. The vignette explores the lives of cannery workers in the early part of the 20th century. The vignette is in the format of a visual essay and uses song to tell the story of life in a coastal cannery. This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.
