Organization of the BSC

The BSC is a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization managed by a board of directors. BSC promotes projects and activities that are carried out by the membership in collaboration with the greater scientific community, federal and provincial government departments and museums, academic institutions, and concerned citizens.
