History of the Socialist Party of Canada - J. M. Milne

Vancouver Socialists Canada 1913

A history of the Socialist Party of Canada, written in 1973. We do not agree with all of the politics of the party but reproduce this history for reference.

Socialism in Canada had its origin in Ontario, the industrial heart of the country. It came to the fore in the 1890s. The Socialist Labor Party, an offshoot of the SLP of the United States, appeared in the early 1890s, established several sections in the eastern provinces, in Winnipeg and Vancouver and contested elections after 1898 in Ontario constituencies.
