We are pleased to invite you to the first Canadian Business History Workshops, which will feature presentation and discussion of two draft papers (circulated in advance). We hope that these will become regular meetings as part of an attempt to build a closer network among business historians in Canada.
The inaugural workshop will be held at the Brantford Campus of Wilfrid Laurier University, 73 George Street, Brantford, Ontario N3T 2Y3 on Friday, 16 November 2012. (For a map, please see: http://tinyurl.com/8kmgjtj).
We will start from noon onwards with lunch, which is kindly offered by the Dean's office. Please make your way to the Carnegie Building, Lower Level, Room 100 for both lunch and sessions.
The schedule is:
12:00-1:30 pm LUNCH
1.30-2.30 pm J. Andrew Ross (University of Guelph), “A Gigantic Hockey Slave Farm”: The Business of Professional Hockey Player Recruitment, 1930-1967
2.30-3.00 pm Coffee break
3.00-4.00 pm Todd Stubbs and Reg Horne (Lakehead University, Orillia Campus), Early Canadian Auto Entrepreneurs and the Failure of the 'All-Canadian' Car Revisited

Even if you cannot attend, but are interested in future events and news about Canadian business history, please join the Canadian Business History Group / Groupe d'historiens des affaires canadiens, accessible at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/cbh-hac
We are planning to make the workshop a twice-yearly event. The next one will take place in the spring at York University in Toronto. So, if you can’t make it to Brantford, watch this space…
