Annual reports of public hospitals in British Columbia

  • GR-2666
  • Series
  • 1969

These records comprise annual reports of public hospitals in British Columbia for 1969. The information contained in these reports was normally published by the British Columbia Government as the Report on Hospital Statistics and the Administration of the Hospital Act. The report was not published for 1969 so these records have been retained as the only source of the information.

Hospital constitutions and bylaws

  • GR-3724
  • Series
  • 1911-1987

The series consists of correspondence, memos, annual reports, draft bylaws, procedures, short reports, constitutions, certificates created under the Societies Act, and small booklets, usually pertaining to a hospital society’s constitution and bylaws. The records provide evidence of the process of developing and amending constitutions and bylaws for hospital societies across British Columbia. Hospital societies appear to have been governed under both the Hospitals Act and the Societies Act, and the Revised Statutes of British Columbia has noted that “notwithstanding the Society Act, a society that owns or operates a hospital shall not exercise any of the borrowing powers conferred by the Society Act without the prior approval of the minister.” (RSBC 1979, c. 176) Under later iterations of the Hospitals Act, a society could not change its constitution or bylaws without ministerial approval. In many cases, however, amendments appear to have been made to the consitutions and bylaws in this series in order to comply with changes made to the Societies Act.

Records in this series are arranged alphabetically by institution name. The BC Cancer Foundation has been filed under “c” for “Cancer Foundation,” and the Mount Waddington Hospital Society was filed under “P” for Port McNeill.

Some of the files originally had records on both the left and right side of the file folder. The metal clips holding these records in place have been removed for preservation purposes. Records that were originally on the left side of the file can be found on the top of the records and are face down. Records that were originally on the right side of the file are on the bottom of the pile, and are face up.
