Name of creator
The Special Services Branch was formed in 1977 when all film and photographic services of the Ministry of Provincial Secretary and Travel Industry were amalgamated under this name. In December 1978 the branch was transferred to the Ministry of Tourism and Small Business Development. In January of 1980 Special Services Branch became part of the Marketing Division of the Ministry of Tourism. The branch disappeared in the 1983/84 restructuring of the Ministry of Tourism. The purpose of the branch was to provide photographic services to all ministries, to maintain the ministry film library and to produce Beautiful British Columbia magazine.
