BC Sessional Papers
The British Columbia Sessional Papers are an annual collection of selected papers tabled in the Legislative Council of British Columbia (2nd to 8th Sessions, 1865-1871) and the Legislative Assembly (1st to 32nd Parliaments, 1872-1982).
The British Columbia Sessional Papers contain materials that document the political, historical, economic and cultural history of British Columbia. The Sessional Papers include official committee reports, orders of the day, petitions and papers presented, records of land sales, correspondence, budgetary estimates, proclamations, maps, voters lists by district, and departmental annual reports.
Volumes 1872-1875, v. 1-4, appeared as appendices to the Journals of the Legislative Assembly. The Journals have been digitized by the Legislative Library of British Columbia and are available at https://archives.leg.bc.ca/civix/content/leg_archives/legarchives/1973118582/?xsl=/templates/browse.xsl
