CHINESE HISTORICAL PLACES PROJECT

Deadline Extended to Nominate a Historic Place

Deadline extended to 2 March 2015.

There is still time to nominate a historic place associated with the history of the Chinese community in British Columbia. The Province will officially recognize up to 10 of the nominated places and all nominated places will be placed on an inventory.  The Chinese Historic Places Recognition Project is an outcome of the Chinese Historical Wrongs Consultation, where many participants expressed the hope that Chinese Canadian cultural history could be preserved in perpetuity.

*The Deadline for Nominations is 2 March 2015*

HERITAGE NEWS & EVENTS

Abraham Lincoln Legacy Initiative

 The Government of B.C. invites British Columbians to share their personal stories or connections related to the legacy of former U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. In 1865, there was widespread grief in B.C. at the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

On the 150th anniversary of his death, British Columbians are asked to participate in the international commemoration of his life and legacy.  Submissions to the Province’s Abraham Lincoln Legacy engagement website will inform a letter for the Abraham Lincoln online exhibit marking the anniversary of Lincoln’s death.
