I’m posting this information about an important institutional development in the field of business history.
Canadian Business History Association/l’association canadienne pour l’histoire des affaires
Dedicated to the pursuit of Canadian business history and its role both domestically and in world business history. Our specific aims include encouraging more studies of enterprise by Canadians and in Canada, helping build and maintain well-structured and open business archives, providing those who study business history a forum for discussing their research with those who practice business, encouraging research projects on relevant subjects and providing funding for such research, and in general encouraging the study of business history in Canada. Membership in the association is now open to individuals, firms, and groups.
The historic first Annual General Meeting of the CBHA/ACHA was held on Tuesday May 3rd, 2016. At this meeting, members elected its first slate of Directors of the organization, were presented with a financial update, and heard short talks from three speakers.
The newly-elected Board of Directors is:
Professor Dimitry Anastakis, Trent University
Mr. Mark S. Bonham, Senior Fellow, Massey College

Dr. Amy Korczynski, Archivist, TD Financial Group
Professor Joe Martin, University of Toronto
