The Letter C Point Ellice House, British Columbia - Picturesque Early House and Gardens anada's intellectual and cultural achievements are an important part of the nation's tangible and intangible legacy. The most visible parts of this heritage are the more than 400 individual buildings that have been commemorated for their architectural merit. The federal commemoration of architectural monuments is one of the country's most successful heritage programs. It directs attention to the need to appreciate and conserve our greatest religious, commercial and government architecture, as well as our outstanding homes and farm buildings. Opportunities remain to broaden this system by greater recognition of vernacular architecture and to update it by examining outstanding examples of the architecture of the modern era.
