Renewal pricing is now available for KnowBC. There is no increase over last year's prices.

KnowBC is built around Harbour Publishing’s Encyclopedia of British Columbia, along with a suite of additional unique BC reference titles.



Harbour Publishing has made a number of changes to KnowBC, including:

  • Updating the site's operating system to improve functionality and user experience
  • Adding external links, primarily in the Encyclopedia of BC and the Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names
  • Adding major reference works to the collection, including Views of the Salish Sea




Encyclopedia of British Columbia is the definitive reference work on BC. With more than 4,000 entries and 1,500 accompanying photographs, maps, charts and tables, as well as sound and video clips, EBC is the source of readable and authoritative information on all the significant BC people, places and things.

Originally a bestselling 824-page book, the EBC is now available exclusively online, allowing for easy access to continually updated information and an expanding database of articles.

With thousands of linked cross-references, a complete index, and sophisticated data searching capabilities, the EBC is indispensable at home, at school, in the office—everywhere comprehensive, authoritative, concise information about BC is needed.
