PROJECT & MUSEUM
"CONNECTING THE PAST
THROUGH THE PRESENT"
The Greek Heritage Project/ Museum was established in 2001 at the Greek Community Centre of Victoria. The museum is dedicated to preserving the rich Greek history of Victoria and around the country through research and education. The museum is currently undertaking an extensive genealogy project documenting the people and history of our community dating back to first Greek to reach Vancouver Island, Juan De Fuca (John "Ioannis" Fokas).
