The BC Accordion Society, a non-profit society, was founded in early 2010 in the beautiful city of Victoria B.C. Our mission is to promote the beauty of this wonderful instrument through concerts, workshops, master classes and competitions.

In 2010, the Society took over the responsibility for Victoria Accordion Festival, establishing at the same time an international accordion competition, for the first time in this part of Canada. The society also created the BC Accordion Orchestra, a unique ensemble of its kind.

Our most important achievement so far, has been establishing the accordion program at Camosun College in Victoria. Currently, this is the only place in Canada, outside Toronto, where students can study accordion and obtain an official degree.
