History Biographical
Kalmen Kaplansky (b. Poland, 1912 - d. Ottawa, 1997) immigrated to Canada in 1929 and soon became active in labour and politics in Montreal. He married Esther Kositsky in 1945 and they had two daughters; Marsha Anne and Frances. In 1946, he was appointed the National Director of the Jewish Labour Committee. Claude Jodoin, head of the newly formed Canadian Labour Congress, invited Kaplansky to be the Director of the International Affairs Department of the Canadian Labour Congress. Kalmen and his family moved to Ottawa in April, 1957 when he assumed this position. From 1967 to 1980, he served as a director of the Canadian Branch of the International Labour Office. For close to three years, beginning in 1971, he was also Chairman of the Special Staff Group on Employment and Economic Opportunities for native northerners of the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. He was a Senior Fellow with the Human Rights Centre, University of Ottawa between 1980 and 1990. Kaplansky was involved with numerous committees, commissions and organizations, with national and international scope, which were concerned with labour and industrial relations, human rights, economic development and education. Upon his retirement in 1980, he was named Member of the Order of Canada. In 1983, he received an honourary degree, Doctor of University, from the University of Ottawa. He died on Human Rights Day, December 10, 1997.
