BCHF News Transforming the Heritage Conservation Act

Transforming the Heritage Conservation Act

BCHF members are invited to take part on a project to align the Heritage Conservation Act in BC with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Virtual sessions are planned Sept. 20 and Oct. 6, providing an opportunity to confirm previously received feedback related to the act and to discuss additional challenges and potential solutions.

To register for a session, please respond via email (EngageHCA@gov.bc.ca) with the
participant’s names, organization or affiliation, and session(s) you are planning to attend. An online survey will be available following the first engagement session while written submissions will be accepted until October 15.

The virtual sessions will be Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon and Oct. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. The first session is for heritage professionals and organizations and the second one is open to anyone.
