The Canadian Teachers' Federation (CTF) is the national alliance of professional teacher organizations representing nearly 200,000 teachers throughout the country. It was founded in 1920. One of its original objectives was to strengthen teacher bargaining positions, particularly in the Prairie provinces. Many joint ventures with provincial and foreign teachers associations have been initiated in such fields as public relations. The Canadian Education Week Movement was launched by the Federation in the 1930's. In 1946, the CTF incorporated. In January 1948, CTF established a central office in Ottawa and appointed a full-time secretary-treasurer. In 1970, the presidency of the CTF became a full-time position.
This collection consists of a subject index to the Canadian Teachers' Federation papers for the years 1920 to 1960 prepared by the organization’s staff.
