Dates of existence


The Vancouver Teachers' Association was formed in 1914. The V.T.A. had hoped to create one large association, but the high school teachers formed their own independent group, the High School Teachers of the Lower Mainland. In 1930 the junior high school teachers withdrew to form their own group. The V.T.A. was renamed the Vancouver Elementary Teachers' Association. In 1935, the name was again changed to the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers' Association. The organization continued to work to promote professional development and conduct wage discussions with the Vancouver School Board. It often worked in conjunction with the Vancouver Secondary Teachers' Association.
