On Friday April 22, 2016, the BC Museums Association and Royal Roads University, in partnership, ran a day-long provincial forum for museums, heritage, arts and culture in British Columbia to discuss the marking of Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017. The day was sponsored by the BC Heritage Branch, the BC Historical Federation and the Archives Association of BC. More than 140 people attended, both on-campus at the university in Victoria and online across the province. The day was also broadcast online via live stream.
Below are documents, resources and links that were used or mentioned during the forum, in addition to resources obtained post-forum. We will continue to add to this page with more Canada 150 resources so please check back!
