Scope and content

The series consists of records of the provincial or parent body including general minutes, 1922-1936, council minutes 1922-1970, officer lists, committee reports, convention materials, financial records, membership lists, addresses, attendance registers, correspondence, scrapbooks, and a photograph album.

The series also consists of records of the Victoria section, including general minutes 1936-1963, council minutes 1936-1963, financial reports 1948-1949, attendance registers and correspondence.

The series also consists of records (including minutes) of the Vancouver section.

Also included in the series are membership lists and reports of BCHA branches including: Alberni, Boundary, Burnaby, Chilliwack, East and West Kootenay, the Gulf Islands, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, Nanaimo, Prince George, Revelstoke, Vancouver and Victoria, 1958-1967.

The fonds consists of numerous accruals which were not integrated as a cohesive fonds; these accruals were arranged and described by archivists independently of each other at different times. For this reason, these groups are now series whose contents overlap. In particular, MS-2779 and MS-2736 should be used in conjunction with each other. Also, the meeting minutes in these two series overlap with series MS-2946.
