    Administrative history

    This organization was originally established in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1881 to assist independent businessmen with accommodations, insurance, and death related benefits as an aid with their business activities. The first president was A.K. Mackinlay and the first secretary was James Fraser. The geographic scope of the organization rapidly changed to include all three Maritime Provinces. In more recent years the Association has offered group registered retirement savings plans and other group benefits. In 1993 members of the Maritime Commercial Travellers Association joined the NWC Travellers Association to provide greater access to benefit services and create a larger national negotiating body.
