Geographical names are more than labels on maps and road signs.
They can reveal patterns of settlement, exploration and migration, and mirror outside
influences to our history - aspects of the heritage and promise of an area that might
otherwise be overlooked or forgotten by visitors and later generations.

We hope this website helps you discover British Columbia's natural & cultural heritage.
