Heritage BC Awards Program
Heritage BC's mission is to provide leadership for sustainable conservation of British Columbia's unique cultural heritage. Towards this goal, the Annual Awards Program recognizes the outstanding and significant achievements in heritage conservation of individuals, organizations, groups, businesses and government in communities across B.C.
Join the celebration at the Heritage BC 36th Annual Awards Gala where the outstanding and significant achievements of British Columbia’s heritage conservation heroes are recognized!
Enjoy drinks, appetizers and networking with B.C.’s heritage advocates, organizations, groups, businesses and government officials as we honour the winners of the 36th Annual Heritage BC Awards.
Our awards gala venue, Heritage Hall, in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant is an excellent example of adaptive reuse of a culturally significant heritage building. Originally Postal Station ‘C’, the building was rehabilitated in the early 1980’s to accommodate community event and office space. A book on the history of the Hall, Heritage Hall: Biography of a Building, was the recipient of a Heritage BC Award of Honour in 2003.
Network with some of the most influential people in our sector, congratulate award winners and celebrate with fellow leading and up-and-coming heritage enthusiasts.
