The British Columbia History Digitization Program (BCHDP) is now accepting applications for project funding. The program, initiated by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006, provides matching funds to support digitization projects that make unique British Columbia content freely available. Since its inception in 2006, the BCHDP has awarded more than $2 million of matching funds for more than 250 projects.

In 2020, the program awarded more than $160,000 for 19 projects. The wealth and diversity of unique British Columbia content to be digitized is impressive. The BCHDP will be accepting applications for the 2021/2022 funding year. Applicants can receive up to $15,000 of matching funds for their projects. Multi-year projects are accepted with each successive year going through the adjudication process.

Applications are due by Friday, December 18, 2020 @ 5:00 pm PST. Information about the application process as well as the guidelines and application form are available on the BCHDP website  ( It is highly recommended that applicants consult the Guidelines and Instructions as well as accessing the Application Form because both are updated annually based on feedback from applicants and the program adjudicators.
