From Qyd
  1. Can we make British Columbia a Featured Article(FA) ??
  2. Expand articles listed in:
  3. Organize list structure and add to list of needed articles:
  4. Check for and do needed articles at:
  5. Establish collaborations and improvements for British Columbia related articles
  6. For Photo Requests, add {{reqphoto|in=British Columbia}} to the talk page. (see {{reqphoto}})
  7. For Map Requests Use {{reqmapin|British Columbia}} on talk page of articles needing maps which will list maps needed at: Category:Wikipedia requested maps in British Columbia. As an alternative using {{coord|50|28|N|126|05|W|display=title|region:CA_type:waterbody}}, for example, as it appears on Johnstone Strait gives a link to map/sat images that is a reasonable alternative. See {{coord}} for more information. Also consider adding link to BC Government place name database using {{BCGNIS}} template.
  8. Assessments
  9. Add BC Project tag to remaining BC Highways. See note at Category talk:British Columbia provincial highways.
  10. Cleanup BC-STV.
  11. There are getting to be quite a few B Class articles in this project. The next step in the assessment process is to nominate these articles as Good Articles following the nomination process.
  12. Browse the BC New Articles page to see what the bot has found.
  13. Add BCProject template to articles within project scope. Use {{WikiProject Canada|bc=yes|class=Stub|importance=low}} following the assessment guidelines (importance = low, mid, high or top, class = stub, start, b, ga, a or fa). Here are some of the many BC categories (drill to sub and parent categories as well) where you can look for untagged articles and articles to expand:

BC | Provincial Parks | Prot Area Stubs | Parks | Settlements | Islands | SFU | UBC | UVic | UNB | Senators | People | Geography | Highways | Mayors of Vancouver | MLAs | Premiers | Islands | Victoria | Transportation | Elections | History | Fjords | Education | Nanaimo | Museums | Sports | Culture | Restaurants | Bridges | Tourism | Media | Cities | Victoria History | Lakes | Politics | People from Victoria | Hotels | BC Lions Players | Airports | Politicians | Explorers | Volcanoes | Visitor Attractions | Railway Stations | Organizations | Transit Agencies | Mountain Ranges | Pre-Confederation people | Companies | Private Schools | Lieutenant Governors | Mayors | MPs | Curlers | Trees | Natural history | Highways | Plateaus
