Dates of existence



The International House Association - B.C. Chapter was formed in 1950 and obtained its charter the following year. Its main goal was to bring together alumni of International Houses residing in the province of B.C. as well as others interested in the International House movement. In addition, the Association sought to "promote the development of better international understanding through personal contact and interchange of ideas between peoples from other countries and residents of Canada." The B.C. Chapter of the Association played a prominent role in developing International House at the University of British Columbia, which opened in 1959. In 1964, the International House Association - B.C. Chapter was amalgamated with International House, and the latter's constitution was broadened to reflect this change.
