From 1857 to 1942 the City of Vancouver operated under a Mayor/Council form of government. For this period, a numeric filing system was used for minutes, ordinances, and resolutions. In 1942 the voters of Vancouver approved a Commission form of government and the records were identified with a C prefix followed by a number, starting with C-1. After 1952, Vancouver switched to a Council/Manager form of government and records are identified with an M prefix followed by a number, beginning with M-1. This is the form in use today.
The 1862 resolutions, 1 and 2, were included in the first bound bolume of Vancouver City Ordinances, which was inclusive of the dates 1858-1879.
