The information below concerning the program is available solely for reference purposes.
Parks Canada's National Historic Sites Cost-Sharing Program ("the Program") helps ensure the commemorative integrity of non-federally owned or administered national historic sites. The Program supports the Parks Canada Agency's mandate of protecting and presenting places of national historic significance, and fostering the public's understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of these places in ways that ensure their commemorative integrity for present and future generations. A national historic site possesses commemorative integrity when it is healthy and whole, and when the site's heritage values are protected, communicated and respected.
Through financial contributions, the Cost-Sharing Program shares the cost of work needed to maintain the physical health, or integrity, of a national historic site.
For 2013-2014, please note that:
Contribution funding will be provided solely to projects that demonstrate a real and immediate threat to the commemorative integrity of a national historic site, for which an intervention is required in the short term to maintain the physical integrity of the threatened cultural resource(s);
Total funding available under the Cost-Sharing Program will be approximately $ 800,000; applicants are encouraged to take this into consideration while preparing their proposal;
Preference may be given to proponents who have not received funding from the Program in the last four years;
Selected projects must take place between April 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014; and
Applications must be submitted by no later than March 8, 2013.
