Reproduction and Permissions for Still Images, Cartographic Records, Sound Recordings and Moving Images

Did you know that the museum and archives are not fully funded? All licensing and permissions fees go toward the costs of caring for and conserving the collections.

Thank you for your support of the BC Archives.

We thank you for your interest in the Royal BC Museum and BC Archives collections. If you wish to obtain a reproduction and/or permission to use material from the still images, cartographic records and/or sound recordings and moving images collections, please complete and submit this form. Once it is received, a staff member will contact you and provide you with the final quote and payment option

The Royal BC Museum and Archives has shifted to a permissions-based approach that takes into consideration Article 31 of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP) and the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (DRIPA). As such, requests to license materials that have Indigenous content, for use outside of the community represented, may not be granted permission for use due to cultural sensitivities, and/or restrictions from community or family.

Please note that staff will be taking a break between July 26 to August 6. We’ll process your orders as soon as we return, but it may take up to three weeks for us to answer requests we receive when we are away. To help us serve all our clients at this time, we won’t be able to process rush or expedited requests. Thank you!
