Dates of existence


Founded in 1909, the British Columbia Academy of Science promoted original scientific research, published papers reporting research results and coordinated and sponsored meetings to further develop interest in the sciences throughout B.C. Through a modest award system, the Academy provided support to scientific research in B.C. at the high school and post-secondary levels. In 1947 the Academy organized its first annual science conference; these conferences continued for fourteen years. In 1963 the Academy was legally disbanded as a result of declining financial and membership support. It played an important formative role in the development of the scientific community in the province. Many of the province's most influential scientists were connected with the Academy during its history.
