Become a Heritage Canada Foundation Facebook fan for an exclusive preview of 2012 Endangered Places List

Ottawa, ON June 22, 2012 – The Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF) will be announcing its Top Ten Endangered Places next week, on Wednesday, June 27. An exclusive preview will be given to HCF’s Facebook fans one day early. Just like the Heritage Canada Foundation on Facebook, then watch for a sneak peak on Tuesday, June 26.

The Endangered Places list is released annually to bring national attention to some of the many sites across Canada at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. It has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.

HCF uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:

  • Significance of the site
  • Urgency of the threat
  • Community support for its preservation

Stay tuned!

The Heritage Canada Foundation is a national registered charity dedicated to the preservation of Canada’s historic places. Your support is vital to our work. Please join or make a tax-deductible donation today.
