The Kaatza Historical Society (Kaatza Station Museum) is honoured to be the recipient of the BC & National collection of the IWA archives in recognition of the historic role that our community played in its formation and growth. The IWA began in the Lake Cowichan Area in the 1930's. The IWA Collection comprising of documents, correspondence and images spans the period from the union's formation until the current century and is an invaluable resource to those researching labour history in BC.
The IWA Annex Building Project will add 800 square feet to our existing facility and provide us with the space to house and display the collection and provide space for researchers to work.
Thank you for your generous support!
