The O'Keefe Ranch gratefully acknowledges the financial investment by the Department of Canadian Heritage in the creation of this online presentation for the Virtual Museum of Canada.

Projects that reflect Canadian communities must also involve those communities during every phase. Many people from the BC ranching community, through helpful comments, suggestions, and the sharing of resources, have helped to bring “Buckaroos in British Columbia” to you.
