Administrative history

The Icelandic Canadian Club of British Columbia (ICC of BC) was established in 1908 when the Literary Society Ingólfur was established in Vancouver. The objects of the Society are to promote an interest in Icelandic culture, traditions and fellowship, the observation of Icelandic holidays, entertain prominent guests from Iceland and North America, and to bring together Icelanders, Canadians and other persons interested in the Icelandic culture, traditions and fellowship. Since it was established, the name of the Club has been changed twice. The first change took place in 1946 when Ingólfur merged with the social club Ísafold under the name Ströndin. The second change took place in 1967 when the new name was adopted as part of a long-term re-organization of the Club. The ICC of BC is the most active single Icelandic Organization in North America, with a paid membership of about 500 persons of all ages. The ICC of BC also works with the Icelandic National League to achieve a national voice for Icelandic Culture throughout North America.
