Nominate a significant South Asian Canadian historic place!

Do you know a historic place associated with the history of the South Asian* Canadian community in B.C. that is important to you or your community?

Heritage BC is pleased to announce the launch of the South Asian Canadian Historic Places Recognition Project! To start off this initiative, we are undertaking a public nominations process on behalf of the Royal BC Museum, University of the Fraser Valley, and British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

» South Asian Canadian Historic Places Recognition Project 

We are looking to the public, in British Columbia and abroad, to nominate historic places that are believed to be significant or important to the history and development of the South Asian Canadian community in the province.

To nominate a historic place complete the online form by November 6, 2016.

*For this process, South Asian is defined as those individuals who identify themselves as having heritage based in India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka.

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.
