Residential Schools: Photographic Collections - British Columbia

Please note that we are making major changes to our website and its supporting technology to improve your experience. As a result, some web pages are not displaying images properly, including photographic collections of Residential schools, the Pan American Games, #OnThisDay, Early Chinese Canadians, the Art of Mary Riter Hamilton, the Battle of Passchendaele, and the Canada Games 1967–1977. While we are working on improving LAC's web presence, please note that all images can be accessed in Collection Search through a search by keyword, photograph title or e-copy number. We apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may cause for our users.
