About

The Churchill Society of British Columbia was founded in 1979 and is devoted to the memory of this outstanding world leader to ensure that his ideals and achievements are not forgotten and are utilized by succeeding generations.

Our most popular activities are our lectures called "Evening with Churchill" which feature outstanding speakers on matters of Current Public Interest and History. To see a synopsis of some past lectures, please go to the section “Past Events”!

The Society promotes interest in and education of the life, times, philosophy and literary heritage of Winston Churchill. Our members receive the quarterly journal "Finest Hour" containing articles on Churchill’s life from The Churchill Centre based in the United States. The Centre sponsors an annual conference which attracts top Churchillian scholars from around the world.

The Society believes that Sir Winston Churchill’s philosophy has relevance to the present, and that his speeches and writings should be remembered by present generations. To this end, the Society has established the Sir Winston Spencer Churchill Memorial Fund that sponsors an annual essay contest open to undergraduate students at UBC and SFU. The Fund encourages young people to look to Churchill as their role model for leadership in today’s changing and complex world.

We would welcome you as a Member or Friend of the Society and if you have any questions please contact us.
