Nominate a Japanese Canadian Historic Place in B.C.!

» Japanese Canadian Historic Places Project Launch Press Release

Do you know a historic place associated with the history of the Japanese community in British Columbia that is important to you or your community? Do you know of any historic places in British Columbia that should be recognized as significant to the Japanese-Canadian community? Let us know!

Heritage BC is pleased to announce a Japanese Canadian Historic Places Recognition Project to be completed on behalf of the British Columbia Ministry of International Trade and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

We are seeking nominations of historic places of place with heritage values believed to be significant or important to the Japanese-Canadian community in BC.

Sites don't have to be grand, or even very old. They can range from buildings, monuments, cemeteries and parks to entire neighbourhoods or districts, and abandoned sites that once stood, but have now been reclaimed by nature.

A selection of the nominated places will be officially recognized by the Government of British Columbia and placed on both the B.C. Register of Historic Places and the Canadian Register of Historic Places.

To nominate a historic place complete the online form by November 30, 2016.
