About AABC


The Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC) was established in 1990 through the amalgamation of the Association of British Columbia Archivists and the B.C. Archives Council.  The merging of these two organizations has allowed the AABC to speak on behalf of both archivists and archival institutions across the province.  As a member of the Canadian Council of Archives, the Association represents archival institutions in British Columbia at the national level.

Honourary Patron: The Honorable Janet Austin, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia
