MOV Legacy Dinner
We are of a city of innovators and visionaries. At the Museum of Vancouver, we aim to look at Vancouver’s past, present, and future, and this fall we invite you to join us for our inaugural Legacy Dinner. This awards dinner and museum fundraiser will honour those individuals and families who have helped shape this city.
Our inaugural awards ceremony was held October 10, 2012. Please stay tuned for our 2013 awards.

How awards were selected:
Following the city’s 125th Anniversary the Board of Directors at the Museum of Vancouver (MOV) felt that an honouring of city visionaries was long overdue. This honouring will recognize those individuals who have shown outstanding vision and commitment to building a city that is ranked as one of the most impressive in the world.
The MOV invited to the selection table well recognized city historians, urban planners, influencers in the business and philanthropic sector, as well as representatives from the MOV Board of Directors. They spent two months reviewing over 50 families and individuals who have helped to mould the city as we know it today and who continue to influence its path to tomorrow.
