About BC Archives

The BC Archives has remained open throughout the pandemic. We have been offering on site services for court requests and legal matters and have offered remote services to all our clients.  As we move through our gradual re-opening of the museum we have given much time to consider how we might open the reference room in a safe way. The archives reference room will have expanded on site services beginning July 30, 2020.
