History

The Riverview Hospital Historical Society was incorporated on December 17, 1997 and was registered with as having charitable status on April 1, 1998. Its structure included a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and two Directors. The Society's mandate was to document the history of psychiatric care in BC and specifically Riverview Hospital and to preserve specialized equipment, furniture, artefacts, textiles, etc. relevant to the daily life of patients and staff at Riverview. The Society established and maintained a museum, which was accessible to the general public and the academic community, as well as staff, patients, and family members. The museum closed in 2012 when the hospital itself was closed down. At this time, ownership of the collection was transferred to City of Coquitlam. The Society continues to serve as an historical resource through lectures, displays and presentations under the direction of President, Anna Tremere.
