Architectural Institute of British Columbia

Iconic buildings rise up on either side of tour groups as they trail guides who regale them with stories and historical insights. Traversing a total of 12 Victoria and Vancouver neighbourhoods, the Architectural Institute of British Columbia’s walking tours illuminate pivotal and noteworthy structures throughout the city. In Victoria, explorers can ramble through Chinatown—the oldest Chinatown in the nation—or feel the waterfront breeze while taking in the splendor of the Parliament buildings. Alternatively, Vancouver walkers can embed themselves in the city’s first neighbourhood, Strathcona, or investigate industrial expansion by roaming Yaletown.

The AIBC, established in 1920, is a self-governing body dedicated to excellence in the profession of architecture for the benefit of the public, its membership and the environment.
