Abstract: In 2016, Labour/Le Travail, the journal of Canadian labour studies, celebrates its 40th anniversary. Th e origins of the journal lie in the 1973 Learneds (now Congress). At the Canadian Committee on Labour History (CCLH) business meeting that year, a working group was created to explore the possibilities of establishing a journal of labour and working-class history in Canada. In 1976, reinforced by a grant from the federal Department of Labour, thanks to the advocacy of Senator Eugene Forsey, Labour/Le Travail launched its fi rst annual. Since then, the journal and the CCLH have supported the historical study of workers, labour, and class relations. A new partnership with the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) bodes well for the future of the journal and speaks to the vibrant community of interdisciplinary researchers interested in issues related to work and working people in Canada.
