Heritage Week is celebrated in communities throughout the province every year.This year the theme of BC’s Heritage Week is Distinctive Destinations: Experience Historic Places. BC Heritage Week traditionally starts on National Heritage Day, the third Monday in February, which is promoted by Heritage Canada– The National Trust.

Both Heritage Canada and Heritage BC have created lists of ideas for activities to help YOU celebrate Heritage Week. On the website, Heritage BC has described 90 ideas ranging from activities for your school, classroom, local heritage site, to even your attic or kitchen. Heritage Canada’s top suggestion for celebrating is to merely take a moment in your day to stop, look around yourself and appreciate the heritage of your community!
