History of the CAW Family Education Centre

In the 1950s, the former Region 7 of the Canadian UAW first explored the idea of an education facility for Canadian union members. The Centre would offer education programs, and hold Council and other leadership meetings. Since August was a slow period for classes and meetings, the plan was to reserve this time for vacationers.
