BCAC Five Year Strategic Plan
It is our pleasure to introduce the BCAC Strategic Plan for 2013-2017. Aviation is critical to enabling and growing the BC economy. The aviation sector supports British Columbians in their everyday lives. It is the job of the BCAC, in partnership with members, stakeholders, and our community, to positively influence the well-being of British Columbia’s aviation sector. It is only by innovating and finding new ways to work together will we see a visible, connected, and thriving aviation and aerospace industry in BC.
This Strategic Plan is a high-level overview of how we will focus the efforts of BCAC over the next five years to achieve this vision.
Photo Contest to Cover 75 Years of Aviation in BC
It’s time to break open the shoe boxes and dust off old albums! Your aviation photos taken anytime over the last 75 years of aviation in BC will play a feature role in the BCAC 75th anniversary celebrations in 2013.
We’ll be looking for your pictures of airports, airplanes, people and all things aviation as we celebrate the past 75 year of BC’s amazing aviation history. This is your chance to share great aviation memories, and perhaps win great prizes for your contributions!
The BCAC welcome individuals and organizations, including aviation executives, pilots, airport managers, suppliers to the industry, aviation enthusiasts, and students.

Submit a nomination now.

BCAC Celebrates 75th Anniversary In 2013
In 1938, aviation was a new idea with plenty of potential. So 39 people, including representatives of 12 municipalities and 8 boards of trade formed the BCAC and held the inaugural BCAC AGM and conference on September 16, 1938, attended by Canada’s first Minister of Transport.
In 2013, we celebrate 75 years of service to our members and our communities. Keep watching as the year unfolds. Press Release
