Punjabi Intercultural History Project

The Royal BC Museum has established partnerships for its multicultural and intercultural initiatives with the Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies (CICS) at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), an institution that has a proven track record in community research and engagement.

Furthering this collaborative work is the BC Intercultural History Project on Canadians of Punjabi Descent Advisory Committee, whose members serve as advisors to the project and community ambassadors. Through wide consultation the Royal BC Museum and the CICS at the UFV are working together with the Committee, and are committed to creating a BC Punjabi Legacy Project through the following province-wide objectives based on community dialogue as a method of community participation and engagement.
