he Canadian Labour Bibliography was an initiative of the Committee on Canadian Labour History in the 1970s. The initial efforts to create an annual reading list of publications dealing with Canadian labour topics led to the creation of The Labour Companion: a bibliography of Canadian labour history based on materials printed from 1950 to 1975. Beginning in 1985, references for the second edition were gathered from libraries and archives, from bibliographies and footnotes, and through a systematic indexing of major Canadian periodicals. The Labour Companion (1980) contained 92 pages of citations; the current manuscript has grown since that time to approximately 760 pages.
