HERITAGE CONSULTANTS: Request for Proposal
The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, on behalf of the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Table on Culture and Heritage (FPTCH), Collaboration on Historic Places Working Group, is requesting proposals from interested parties across Canada to undertake and supply a comprehensive environmental scan and analysis of federal, provincial, territorial and Indigenous (FPTI) approaches to protecting, conserving, and recognizing Canada’s places of significance to First Nations history, culture and heritage, and working with Indigenous communities to achieve those ends.
This endeavor seeks to support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action by paving the path towards a greater understanding of current FPTI approaches to safeguarding First Nations history, culture and heritage.
Interested consultants are encouraged to respond to the Request for Proposal, listed on BCBid (link), before December 30, 2016.
STOPS OF INTEREST
There are 164 existing Stop of Interest signs throughout BC, each telling the story of a person, place or event significant to provincial history. Over time however, a number of these signs have become dated, worn, or lost, and the government is busy repairing the existing signs. At the same time, the B.C. government is looking at adding 75 new signs to the Stops of Interest inventory, providing an opportunity to highlight other people, places and events.
This is an opportunity to involve the public in identifying as-yet unsigned sites of significance to celebrate even more of B.C.’s rich history. Anyone can provide ideas of landmarks and stories by completing the suggestion form.
Please tell your memberships and colleagues about this important recognition project. Suggestions will be collected until January 31, 2017.
