Pride of Place Minister's Conference  

The Provincial Capital Commission hosted a conference titled "Pride of Place, Your Capital - The Minister's Conference on the Capital City". The conference was held Saturday October 24th 1998 with registration and welcoming comments the evening of Friday October 23rd. All events took place in the recently restored St. Ann's Academy (835 Humboldt St., Victoria) with the plenary sessions taking place in the chapel.

The purpose of the conference was to identify enhancements to the capital, which would help ensure that all British Columbians feel connected to their provincial capital, and have an inherent pride in its beauty and significance as the seat of government of the province. The goals to be achieved through the conference included:  Top of page
