      Dates of existence



      The British Columbia Mountaineering Club was first established on 22 Oct 1907 as the Vancouver Mountaineering Club. Its first annual meeting was held on 1 Mar 1908 and it was later incorporated as a Society under the Friendly Societies Act on 25 Nov 1912. At the club's second annual meeting, held 29 Mar 1909, it was decided to change the name of the club to the British Columbia Mountaineering Club, or BCMC. The BCMC has been involved in a number of activities including the organization of regular mountaineering trips, winter and summer mountaineering camps, conservation and land use issues - including advocating for the establishment of several provincial parks - as well as social and educational events for club members. The BCMC's Natural History Section became the Vancouver Natural History Society in 1918. The BCMC celebrated its centennial in 2007 and remains an active organisation today.
