The British Columbia Historical Federation encourages interest in the history of British Columbia through research, presentation, and support in its role as an umbrella organization for provincial historical societies.
The British Columbia Historical Association was established on October 12, 1922, and on March 2, 1927, the Association was registered under the Societies Act. It was renamed the British Columbia Historical Federation on July 29, 1983 — a name that better reflects its role as an umbrella organization for provincial historical societies. The Federation is a non–profit organization registered as a charitable society under the Income Tax Act.
What People Are Saying
"There are stories to tell from across British Columbia. This is the beating heart of this land… of time… of memories of you and yours. Old stories can become heard again. We share wisdom and folly, lives lived and lives remembered. To make these stories heard again… to hear their beating hearts. "
