Welcome to the Archives Association of British Columbia

The Archives Association of British Columbia represents individual and institutional members, maintains resources for the public and the archival community, and advocate for Archives in the province.

Are you searching for archives?  Please visit MemoryBC.ca, our portal to descriptions of archival materials preserved in repositories throughout the province.

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.  We assist the community through our Educational Advisory, Preservation, and Network Services and maintenance of the provincial catalogue (MemoryBC.ca).  See the About Us section for further details and how to contact us.
