About the AABC
Honourary Patron: The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia
The Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC) was established in 1990 through the amalgamation of the Association of British Columbia Archivists and the B.C. Archives Council. The merging of these two organizations has allowed the AABC to speak on behalf of both archivists and archival institutions across the province. As a member of the Canadian Council of Archives, the Association represents archival institutions in British Columbia at the national level.
Our mission is to foster the development of the provincial archival community in order to better preserve and promote access to British Columbia's documentary heritage.
The Archives Association of British Columbia is committed to the following goals in support of its mission
- To provide services to increase the capacity of archives throughout the province to preserve and provide access to B.C.'s documentary heritage;
- To build and maintain the provincial catalogue in support of the national catalogue;
- To allocate National Archival Development Program and other funding to the best uses in support of our mission; and
- To provide the infrastructure to support networking opportunities for members.
The AABC is a registered charity (Charitable Status Number: 86502-2529-RR0001). Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $20.00 or more. To support the work of the Association in helping preserve and make accessible British Columbia's documentary heritage, people are asked to download and print a donation form and mail it, along with their financial contribution, to the AABC address below.
