 BC/Yukon Branch  (est. 1982)

About the BC/Yukon Branch

The branch is dedicated to fostering an understanding and appreciation of the nobel craft, art and science of heraldry in Western Canada. To this end, the branch publishes The BC Blazon (formally "The Blazon"), a twice yearly colourful 8 to 12 page newsletter covering some of the latest and most interesting news of heraldry in Canada and around the world. The Branch also has an annual black-tie dinner supplemented with luncheon meetings throughout the year. Heraldic exhibits are presented at various times as a further method of sharing heraldry with the community.
