Heritage Capacity & Economic Impact Surveys

Thank you to all who provided input and assistance for the Building Capacity in Heritage Conservation 2015 and Economic Impact of Heritage Conservation 2014/2015 Surveys we created on behalf of the Heritage Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
These surveys help the Heritage Branch to assess heritage conservation capacity, and supply information to support Branch policy planning. Survey responses will also enable us to tailor our capacity-building programs to the needs of communities and enhance heritage conservation support programs such as the Heritage Legacy Fund.
The survey results will be released in the summer of 2016.
