Administrative history

The BC Sugar Museum opened in 1976. The intent of the Museum was education and outreach and stemmed from a desire to give back to the community and share the rich history of BC Sugar. Along with other members of the public and tourists, thousands of children from British Columbia toured the BC Sugar Museum with school groups.

The BC Sugar Museum was essentially cut off from the public and bus loads of tour groups in 2001 after the Port Metro Vancouver began enforcing strict security measures and severely restricting access to the Port Metro Vancouver following the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Custodial history

Series contains records created by various BC Sugar departments and originally filed in the BC Sugar records system. Some time after the founding of the BC Sugar Museum, records were removed from their original department recordkeeping systems by BC Sugar Museum staff and inter-filed with Museum records to create a subject file series on the history of BC Sugar.

Scope and content

Series consists of records created and aggregated by BC Sugar Museum staff to document the history of BC Sugar and its subsidiaries. Records come from within BC Sugar, outside sources, and content created by Museum staff. The series was created specifically to document significant events in the history of the company.

The series contains a mix of original records, handwritten notes, and photocopies collected by the BC Sugar Museum. Materials in this series vary widely and include correspondence, newspaper clippings, collected stories about BC Sugar, contracts, and various other materials thought to be useful by BC Sugar Museum staff.
