Heritage Building Restoration

Masonry for Historic Building Restoration in Victoria

The Heritage Canada Foundation watches carefully to what is happening in heritage preservation across Canada. In many communities, owners of heritage buildings are restoring them and putting them to good use. In others, heritage buildings are being neglected. Often, heritage organizations ask us for support in saving threatened historic buildings and community landmarks. In response, we give advice and help groups to strengthen their arguments for preservation. We write letters of support to help get buildings protected by municipal, provincial or federal laws. We also share ideas about finding funds to restore heritage buildings.

Laws and Policies

The Heritage Canada Foundation also makes sure that preservation is on the agenda of all levels of government. We help to shape and strengthen laws and policies that affect heritage property, including the tax treatment of buildings.

Non-Profit Voice for Heritage Conservation

Established in 1973, the Heritage Canada Foundation is a national, membership-based, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the conservation, understanding, and appreciation of Canada’s built heritage, historic places, and cultural landscapes and their importance in the life of our communities. The foundation is the national voice for heritage conservation.

Points to Ponder:

  • 30 to 60% of our landfills are made up of rubble from construction and demolition.
  • Rehabilitation of older buildings uses 23% less energy than new construction.
  • Using (or reusing) materials that are salvaged, or similar to the original, will better suit your home and cost less.
  • Vinyl cladding can prevent an older home from breathing properly.
  • Repairing old plaster walls is easier and less costly than drywall.
  • Wood windows (with minor maintenance) will outlive vinyl ones. It is cheaper to repair than to replace windows.
