Dear Subscriber


Heritage BC Quarterly Submission Deadline

We want to see your examples of adaptive reuse in B.C. Whether it is a heritage home-turned-community centre or train station-turned-commercial space, we want to hear about it!

Send a 300 word article and high resolution (300dpi or more) photographs to amusmary@heritagebc.ca by this Thursday (April 30)!

You can also support us and our work by advertising in the Heritage BC Quarterly. It is a unique opportunity to reach planners, architects, local governments, heritage home owners and more as well as providing us with desperately needed financial support.

We still have some ad space available for our upcoming spring issue. Advertisements must be placed by April 30.
