Records of the Minister of Small Business, Tourism and Culture

  • GR-3558
  • Series
  • 1989-1995

The series consists of correspondence, reports, meeting minutes, briefing notes, business plans, newsletters and marketing plans created by the Minister of Small Business, Tourism, and Culture. The series consists of records created by both Darlene Mazari and her successor Bill Barlee. Mazari served as the Minister of Tourism and Minister Responsible for Culture between 1991 and 1993, and Barlee served as the Minister of Small Business, Tourism, and Culture from 1993 to 1996. The records document the government’s involvement with libraries, publishers, historic sites, and museums province-wide. The series demonstrates the involvement of the provincial government in marketing British Columbia as a tourist destination to BC residents, Canadians, and foreign visitors. The series also provides evidence of the relationship between British Columbia’s First Nations and the provincial government. The series includes several industry- or sector-specific reports, including strategies for golf and ski resorts, and rail travel. The series consists of records relating to the development of Hastings Park, the site of the PNE, Barkerville, Fort Steele, and the Kettle Valley Railway. The records also provide evidence of how BC’s decisions to develop areas such as Clayquot Sound affected tourism and outsiders’ perceptions of the province.

Records in accession 92-4526 date from 1989 but appear to be have been used by Mazari and placed in the file in the 1990s.
The series is arranged by subject.
