What we are

We are the BC/Yukon branch of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada (RHSC).


The Branch had its inaugural meeting at the home of Robert Watt in North Vancouver.  Robb later became the first Chief Herald of Canada and retired in the Summer of 2007.  There were eleven members at that first meeting.


The branch is dedicated to fostering an understanding, appreciation, and use of the noble craft, art, and tradition of heraldry in British Columbia and the Yukon. 


In furtherance of our goals, the branch publishes The BC/Yukon Blazon, a twice yearly colourful newsletter covering some of the latest and most interesting news of heraldry in the Yukon, British Columbia, and from around the world.  The Branch also has an annual black-tie dinner supplemented with one or more luncheon meetings throughout the year.  Heraldic exhibits and talks are presented at various times as a further method of sharing heraldry with the community.

If you would like to take part in some or all of these activities and would like to join us, please see our Membership page.
