Welcome to the Canadian Architecture blog!

Welcome to the first Canadian Architecture blog brought to you by the Malcolmites! We hope this blog will encourage those interested in Canadian architecture to talk (or more specifically, type) about architecture in Canada.

Top 5 Victoria Area Churches

Today was our last day on Vancouver Island for the 2010 Gothic Summit, and while we did not see the entire island and its surroundings, here are some of our favourites that we did see:

St Stephen's Anglican, Saanich

Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria

St Paul's Catholic Church, Fulford Harbour, Salt Spring Island

Holy Trinity Church, North Saanich

St Mary's Anglican, Salt Spring Island


  1. Its good that someone has recorded the existence of these churches: all the Anglican ones (except for the cathedral) have been approved for closure so they may not be there for your next visit.

  2. That is exactly why we do what we do. If you know of any churches that are to be demolished, please let us know - we have colleagues in BC who can document them thoroughly.

    Thanks for your feedback and we hope to hear from you again!

  3. There's a list of Anglican churches and what's happening to them on pages 3 and 4 of this:

    Good luck with your project.

  4. Thank you so much for the information and for showing so much interest in our blog. We are both PhD students and travel around the country photographing buildings and researching them. Our hope is that we can bring some recognition to the field of architectural history in Canada and that by doing so we can help preserve the heritage buildings that are at risk in the country. Thanks again and we hope you keep reading and posting. Cheers!
