B.C. Spirit Squares are gathering places for communities, created to help celebrate BC150 – the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Crown Colony of British Columbia – as well as many other festivities and milestones in the future.
These squares celebrate B.C.'s heritage and achievements – past, present and future – and leave a legacy for current and future generations to enjoy.
Spirit Squares reflect the unique character, diversity, cultural and First Nations heritage and history of communities, sharing that richness with residents and visitors alike.
Plan to visit a local Spirit Square and travel to see some of the others around the province For a complete list of projects, visit the Funded Projects page.
