VICTORIA – Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, has issued the following statement:

“Government is proclaiming Feb. 18 to 24, 2019, as Heritage Week in B.C. to give British Columbians the opportunity to discover the past, as well as to acknowledge, explore and enjoy the province’s diverse and interwoven cultures.

“We also celebrate and acknowledge Indigenous culture, which has existed since time immemorial and is inextricably woven into memory, culture, place and practice.

“In 2019, the theme is Heritage: The Tie That Binds because all British Columbians contribute to the rich cultural heritage of this province.

“Government is launching a new web map, so people can look at historic places in their area, including the buildings, neighbourhoods, trails and cultural landscapes that contribute to British Columbia’s unique identity.

“The BC Historic Places web map shows post-1846 historic places that are formally recognized for their heritage value by the Province or a local government under provincial legislation, as recorded in the BC Register of Historic Places.”
