The Coquitlam Teachers’ Association (CTA) was incorporated as a society under the Societies Act on May 23, 1973.  Since that time the membership has grown steadily to more than 2300 teachers; making the CTA the third largest BCTF local in the province.  The history of the organization illustrates its effectiveness in working for the rights of teachers and students in promoting public education.
