A Sense Of Place

Canada's historic places capture the spirit of the nation, providing the connecting fabric that links us together as Canadians. However, our historic places are at risk - over 20% of the nation's historic buildings have been destroyed in one generation. This video presents the efforts made by the different levels of government to promote a culture of conservation within our communities.

The federal, provincial and territorial collaboration allows Canadians to have access to tools to preserve the different places illustrating their history.
