Deadline Looms for Canada's Historic Lighthouses

Sign the petition to help save Canada's Historic Lighthouses

Ottawa, ON, March 23, 2012 – The Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF) is urging Canadians to sign a petition to help save Canada’s historic lighthouses. The Government of Canada owns hundreds of iconic lighthouses, and has declared almost all of them to be “surplus”. Canadians have until May 29, 2012 to nominate lighthouses that matter to them for designation under the Heritage Lighthouse Protection Act. However, almost all of them will require a proposal from an organization or group willing to acquire and invest in them. 

You can help: Call on the Federal Government now to invest in the efforts of local groups and communities that are committed to saving Canada's lighthouses for future generations.  Sign the petition to help protect Canada’s historic lighthouses. Then, share the petition on Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for taking action to save Canada’s lighthouses.

The Heritage Canada Foundation is a national, membership-based, non profit organization with a mandate to promote the preservation of Canada’s historic buildings and places. Please join or make a tax-deductible donation today.
