How does it work?

Government authorities can arrange the provision of free services and materials for heritage conservation projects. In most cases, this constitutes the advice of government experts. In Vancouver, it constitutes something a bit different.

Examples of donation of materials or labour:

  • True Colours Paint Granting Program – The Vancouver Heritage Foundation (VHF) operates this program. Homeowners of designated heritage homes receive a colour consultation with heritage consultant, a historic paint analysis, and paint. VHF is a not-for-profit foundation funded by the City of Vancouver.
