Biographical history

Townshippers' Association, previously known as the English-speaking Townshippers' Association, was founded in 1979. As early as 1973, members of the English-speaking community wished to have an association to represent them, a desire that led to the founding of the Eastern Townships Social Action Group and later the Eastern Townships Citizens' Association. These organizations never, however, had wide support from the community. Townshippers' Association promotes the interests of the English-speaking community of the Eastern Townships; seeks to strengthen the cultural identity of the English-speaking community; encourages the full participation of the English-speaking community in the community at large; and collects monies, by way of donations, dues, or otherwise, to fund projects. The Association is managed by its Board of Directors and Executive Committee, assisted by regular staff. Over the years, various permanent committees have been created to work on dossiers such as education, employment, and health and social services. The Association is funded primarily by the Secretary of State.

Scope and content

The fonds contains source material on the organization, operations, and activities of the Townshippers' Association from 1975 to 2013 and is more broadly of value as a source of information on the views and attitudes of the English-speaking community of the Eastern Townships during that period. The fonds consists of documentary materials of various kinds, including minutes, financial statements reports, briefs, correspondence, surveys, leaflets, and publications. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Administration and Organization (1975-2013), Operational Committees (1978-2013), Program Committees (1979-2010), Ad Hoc Committees (1979-2013), Regional Associations (1979-2013), Other Organizations (1983-1990), Federal Government (1981-1992), and Provincial Government (1983-1992).
