Annual Toronto History Lecture

Historian, author, York University professor and member of the former Library and Archives Canada Services Advisory Board, Craig Heron, will be delivering the 2014 Lecture, on the topic of The Workers’ City: Lives of Toronto’s Working People.
Generations of working people literally built the city and created the goods and services to sustain a large metropolitan population. Yet their stories are seldom told. Historian Craig Heron will explore the opportunities and challenges that members of the city’s working class have faced over the past 150 years, and will share his insights into major changes and common themes during that period, through the lives of eight different Toronto workers.

The 2014 lecture is dedicated to the memory of J. Brian Gilchrist (1956-2014)
