Name of creator
On March 9, 1939 a meeting of coastwise operators was held at the Vancouver Merchants Exchange. Those present approved a motion "that an association be formed comprising all Coastwise Operators, for the purpose of dealing with the mutal problems of its members...." A consititution for the Coastwise Operators' Association of British Coloumbia was subsequently drawn up. Members were to include any firm or person who was an owner or operator of steamships and/or vessels operating in the coastwise passenger and/or freight trade of British Columbia and contiguous waters. As noted in the June 23, 1939 minutes, the Association was to be considered a subsidiary body of the Merchants' Exchange. Matters of concern included pilotage, hiring of crew, rates of pay, union agreements, labour matters, military training, and aids to navigation.
Received as part of the Chamber of Shipping of British Columbia records.
