Have your Say! Public Engagements April 2019

The Royal BC Museum is one of B.C.’s greatest cultural icons, drawing millions of visitors each year onsite and online. It offers visitors the chance to explore our social and environmental history and discover the events and people that have shaped our province.

On Feb. 12, 2019, the speech from the throne announced government’s intention to modernize the Royal BC Museum, to protect its historic holdings and provide better access to its collections. This consultation is a first step in gathering ideas for a modern provincial museum that contains exhibits and learning modules reflective of the whole province.

Staff from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and the Royal BC Museum will be engaging with British Columbians between April 1 and June 27, 2019. They look forward to hearing from people from all over B.C., including Indigenous people and local nations, historians and scientists, academics, teachers, the technology sector, tourism organizations, and the gallery, library, archives and museum community.

Feedback will be gathered through:

  • An online dialogue hosted on this site between April 1 – June 27, 2019 at 4pm. See below.
  • Formal submissions from experts or organizations that will be accepted by email at rbcm.engagement@gov.bc.ca until June 27 at 4pm.
  • Public meetings taking place in Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Prince George, Terrace, Fort St. John, and Cranbrook in May and June 2019.

All feedback received will be used as input into recommendations that will be developed in the Fall 2019.

What is this engagement about?

Our CleanBC plan puts the province on the path to a better future, and in the coming months we’ll be engaging British Columbians on ways to make active transportation options more convenient and affordable. We’re aiming to work in partnership with communities to make all forms of active transportation, whether it’s walking, cycling, scootering or other mode, convenient for people of all ages and abilities.

Over the next two months, the public is invited to participate in the online discussion forum about active transportation.

In addition to the online discussion, there will be conversations with local planners, Indigenous communities and a formal stakeholder submission process.

Starting March 1st, a new online discussion question will be posted every two weeks. The engagement will be open until April 15, 2019 at 4pm.

Ferries for the next generation

We Are Building the Next Generation of Ferries

We’re thinking about you, the environment and the future of travel as we design ferries that will serve Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island for future generations. We’d like to show you what we’ve been up to and invite you into conversations that will help shape your future onboard experience.

What we’ve been up to

We are getting ready to build new ferries to replace four of our existing vessels (Queen of Alberni, Queen of New Westminster, Queen of Coquitlam, and Queen of Cowichan). This is one of the biggest projects BC Ferries has ever undertaken and there is a lot to consider as we work to:

  • Keep fares affordable
  • Reduce our environmental impact
  • Plan for flexibility to meet changing demands; and
  • Enhance the onboard experience of our customers.

Join the conversation

Please join us as we explore how our new ferries will serve you in the future.
