Heritage Canada Foundation calling for input on Federal Budget Cuts

Just recently, the Heritage Canada Foundation announced;

The Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF) is seeking input from Canadians on how recent federal budget cuts—and other changing social and economic priorities—are affecting heritage in their communities.

There is a growing sense that heritage is losing ground. The much-vaunted federal Historic Places Initiative is a distant memory. More recently, heritage budgets at the federal and provincial levels have been slashed.

What are the implications for heritage in Canada? How can heritage advocates make a difference? HCF’s upcoming National Heritage Summit, October 11-13, will be a watershed event designed to take stock, explore options and set a new direction for the heritage movement. What’s working? What’s not? What needs to change?
