According to the About BC150 Years page, "The BC150 Years Secretariat is the energetic branch of the Ministry of Tourism, Sport and the Arts tasked with organizing and implementing BC150 Years celebrations across British Columbia.

BC150 Years celebrates the adventures, struggles, people, events and achievements that have shaped our provincial identity. It?s a celebration with a focus on five strong pillars: Heritage, Communities, Multiculturalism, Aboriginals, Arts & Culture.

In the last 150 years, we?ve experienced tremendous cultural, economic and innovative growth that has brought British Columbia to where we are today. It?s time to celebrate that. Celebrate where we are, and who we are - British Columbians one and all.

Core features of the Web site are an events calendar and a compilation of "B.C. Facts".

The strategy is simple. A core of events that captures the imagination and shows we have a lot to be proud of. At the same time, we?re building bridges with First Nations, diverse cultures, communities, business, educators and arts and culture organizations to give them the support and tools they need to ensure that everyone is part of the celebration.
