Scope and content

The CTKL distributed and supported the I.W.W. Finnish language paper Industrialisti, published in Duluth, Minnesota, by the Workers (Socialist) Publishing Company. The Canadian News Service (C.N.S), in Finnish the Canadan Uutistoimisto (C.U.T.), was the agency of the CTKL which managed the distribution of the paper. The CTKL secretary-treasurer was also the agent of the news service unless otherwise designated.

The C.N.S. was much more than a distributor of newspapers; it existed as a supportive agency for new immigrants. The C.N.S. at times operated as a travel agency, a book store, a record store, a book and play library, and often sent parcels and money on behalf of Finns and their relatives in Finland. During the latter part of the CTKL, it was the C.N.S. that was the active component in the community.

Series consists primarily of correspondence and financial records. Includes Workers (Socialist) Publishing Company minutes, correspondence, and financial records.
