Dates of existence



The Vancouver Teachers' Association was formed in late 1914 and served as the civic voice for many teachers until 1930. The V.T.A. sought 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. In 1935, the secondary school teachers and the junior high teachers merged to form the Vancouver Secondary Teachers' Association. The body worked to assist teachers in professional development, political lobbying and wage discussions. The V.S.T.A. often worked in conjunction with the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers' Association.
