National Heritage Summit

Heritage Conservation in Canada:

What’s Working? And What Needs to Change?

Montreal, Quebec

October 11 – 13, 2012

Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel

HCF’s 39th Annual National Conference. Be There, Pitch In and Take Action!

Featuring dynamic, candid sessions that go to the heart of the heritage movement’s current challenges:

  • A high-powered panel on the fate of the heritage movement in the era of “small government;”
  • Young voices on initiatives that mobilize the next generation, and the future of heritage;
  • Whether traditional, standing-in-front-of-bulldozers advocacy is dead;
  • Professionals on heritage principles and compromises on the ground;
  • The hidden decision-shapers in the municipal heritage process;
  • Economically-challenged communities seizing on existing buildings as key revitalization assets.

Eye-popping venues like the brand new conversion of the Erskine and American United Church into a concert hall at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Don’t miss tours to extraordinary industrial sites like the Beauharnois hydroelectric plant – an Art Deco beauty – or the imposing Silo # 5 on the Montreal waterfront. Learn from Montreal heritage flashpoints like Griffintown and Boulevard St. Laurent.
