Places That Matter is all about collaboration – and sharing the unique and lesser known history of the people, places and events that have shaped Vancouver since its incorporation as a city in 1886. Places That Matter evolved from the Vancouver 125th Anniversary celebrations in 2011. VHF asked the public to nominate a place, person, or event that is important to the city of Vancouver but that has yet to receive the acknowledgement it deserves. An independent committee made up of local historians, artists, students, heritage consultants, writers and educators reviewed the nominations and 125 Vancouver stories were selected to be celebrated with a researched blue plaque.
