Upcoming Spring Heritage Workshop

June 1, 2022

Statement of Significance Workshop

Wednesday, June 1, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A Statement of Significance is a document that explains why a historic place is important and identifies the features of the place that should be preserved. Using case‑studies and a virtual exercise, workshop participants will learn how to assess a historic building’s heritage value, identify its character‑defining elements, and communicate this information in a well‑written Statement of Significance.

This will qualify for 2 LU’s

Heritage Standards and Guidelines Workshop

Thursday, June 2, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
It is necessary to properly maintain heritage buildings, and sometimes to make changes to them. This workshop will discuss best practices for this work, including striking a balance between heritage requirements and economic feasibility. Participants will be introduced to the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada, a nationally recognized manual that guides decisions about alterations to heritage buildings and other historic places.

This will qualify for 2 LU’s.

Stay tuned for further information on registration coming soon.
