Heritage Canada accepting nominations for TOP TEN ENDANGERED PLACES

Heritage Canada The National Trust (HCNT) is accepting nominations to Canada’s Top Ten Endangered Places List. The list is released annually to bring national attention to sites at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. It has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.
HCNT uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:

  • Significance of the site 
  • Urgency of the threat 
  • Community support for its preservation 
Nominations should be received by Friday, May 9, 2014. The 2014 list will be announced in June.
Feel free to contact us if you’re considering a nomination or have any questions.
