Dates of existence


In 1892 the British Columbia Institute of Architects was established in Victoria under the Literary Societies Act for the advancement, protection and elevation of architecture and the cultivation of friendly intercourse among members of the profession. In 1914 it became an independent society under the Benevolent Societies Act. In 1920 the Provincial Legislature passed the British Columbia Architects Act, incorporating the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) and regulating persons who practiced as architects.
