Custodial history

Scope and content

The series consists of the general files of the British Columbia Archives Council from 1984 to 1992. The files are mostly arranged alphabetically by subject but later files did not always follow the classification scheme. The files cover all administrative and operational activities undertaken by the Council, including their main activity of adjudicating CCA grants for BC archival institutions. The functions of the BCAC were assumed by the Archives Association of British Columbia in 1990.
