Since 1922, the British Columbia Historical Federation, previously the British Columbia Historical Association, has operated in the non-profit space as the leading umbrella organization for historical societies in British Columbia.  By promoting the preservation of historical sites and places of historical interest, the British Columbia Historical Federation’s underlying objective is to spark public interest and encourage historical research in the province.

For further awareness of its goals, to generate interest in the history of British Colombia, the British Columbia Historical Federation produces a flagship magazine publication, British Columbia History.  With quarterly published issues, British Columbia History shares unique stories through the words and images of community writers and historians.  Every must-read issue is packed with fresh articles and photographs, as well as relevant insights into local archives.
