We tell the stories of work and working life in Canada and beyond. Our multi-disciplinary events offer a contemporary perspective on issues that affect society, work and communities.


WAHC relies on the generous contributions of our volunteers and sponsors/donors to do all of what we do. Are you interested in history, labour, and art? Join us! We couldn't do it without you.


Seeking a venue for a meeting or event? Consider holding it at the historic Custom House! From weddings to conferences to film shoots, we can accommodate any number of private functions.
