“Connecting and celebrating the Capital with all British Columbians” is at the core of the Provincial Capital Commission's mandate, which it accomplishes through delivery of a wide variety of Outreach programs, events and province-wide initiatives.
A self-sustaining Crown agency, the PCC reports to government through the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and derives its operating revenues through careful stewardship of numerous properties and important heritage buildings.
Welcome to Victoria - BC's Beautiful Capital City. We invite you to Learn, Visit, Connect & Celebrate!
From Atlin to Zeballos, Yahk to Dawson Creek, 31,000 young British Columbians from 700 youth groups have experienced educational field trips to their Capital thanks in part to the PCC's Capital for Kids travel funding program which has benefitted more than 100 BC communities.
Capital for Kids is funded by revenue generated from the PCC's property holdings.
For travel from July 2013 to January 2014, the application deadline is May 16, 2013.
For travel between February and June 2014, the application deadline is Nov. 21, 2013.
The seat of government, a repository of our province's past, a place to celebrate the present and envision the future...and so much more!
