What is the Archives Association of British Columbia?

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 B.C. Heritage Council, the AABC is committed to working to preserve British Columbia's documentary heritage. As a member of the Canadian Council of Archives, the Association represents archival institutions in B.C. at the national level.


The Archives Association of British Columbia is committed to the following goals:

  • To provide educational opportunities for those engaged in all aspects of archival work in British Columbia;
  • To coordinate projects and programs designed to promote and strengthen the archival network within the province;
  • To function as an advocacy and lobby group on behalf of archives and archivists by preparing presentations for governmental agencies, as well as by promoting a better understanding of our field amongst the general public;
  • To cooperate with all organizations engaged in heritage and information-management activities within the province.
