Manitoba Organization: Manitoba Educational Association

Link to:
Presidents | Secretaries | Sources

The Manitoba Educational Association was established in 1905. Unlike other Manitoba organizations dedicated to educational aims, the mandate of the MEA was broad and included teachers, inspectors, administrators, and ordinary citizens among its members. From 1905 to 1919, when the Manitoba Teachers’ Federation was formed, the MEA was the only organization speaking up for the province’s teachers. Its major activity was a well-attended convention held in the spring of each year.
