BC Regional Heritage Fairs
CCHSBC is a proud participant and supporter of the BC Regional Heritage Fairs, a province-wide programme that encourages youth to see history around them. Heritage Fairs are a group opportunity for young students to explore different historical topics, such as their own personal heritage.
