The heritage revitalization agreement process is a cornerstone for conservation at the local level, yet is it something that can be as challenging as it can be helpful. In this webinar, our panel delved into real-life situations to explore the challenges, successes, and surprises of what can happen ‘on the ground’.

Elana Zysblat, Heritage Consultant, Ance Building Services
James Boldt, Heritage Planner, City of Vancouver
In this new webinar, developed specifically for the heritage sector, we will explore the perceptions, challenges, and practices of real estate, insurance, appraisals and building codes. Registration for this on demand webinar includes a complimentary download of Heritage Real Estate: Perceptions and Practices.
In this webinar, we challenged old assumptions and attitudes to explore new approaches and the power of new alliances. What are the emerging thoughts in managing and inhabiting heritage? How do we move away from the silos and work toward a more collaborative environment? How are our roles changing? How are relationships changing?
The webinar featured a panel of six sector leaders:
For individuals or groups new to heritage conservation or those that want to incorporate new legislative tools or values-based management into existing heritage programs, this is the webinar version of Heritage BC’s popular workshop. Great for heritage society members, planners, elected officials, community heritage commissions, heritage property owners, the business and tourism community and the general public. This webinar introduces values centred heritage conservation and benefits (social, environmental, economic) to help identify heritage values and guide decision-making.
This webinar helps participants develop the necessary documentation for identified sites on a Community Heritage Register. As an essential component of historic place record documentation, the SOS functions as a key planning tool to inform decision-making in the heritage conservation process. It provides guidance to property owners, architects, developers and others who are making an intervention to a historic place. Gain an understanding of what an SOS is, how it can be used and what elements to include in a well-written document. This webinar is especially useful for those who are applying to the Heritage Legacy Fund, as an SOS for the chosen site is a compulsory element to the Heritage Conservation Program application.
A Heritage Conservation Area (HCA) is an increasingly popular tool for local governments to protect areas with heritage value or character, but what does it do and what are the implications of its use? This webinar explores the HCA by explaining what it is, its legal framework and how this tool interacts with other planning tools such as permits and incentives. This session is great for planners, elected officials, community heritage commissions, heritage property owners, business and tourism community members, and the general public.
This webinar introduces the intersections between heritage conservation, sustainability, and climate change. Climate change may have potentially serious implications for the historic environment. Cultural heritage sites can be particularly sensitive to severe weather events and to changes in climate. How can we mitigate the adverse implications of climate change in heritage conservation, and integrate the best practices of sustainability into heritage conservation? This webinar will also examine some current programs being offered to assist with long-term sustainability in heritage conservation projects.
This webinar introduced the topic of heritage and cultural tourism, what is meant by heritage and cultural tourism, benefits of heritage and cultural tourism, and best practices for developing and delivering heritage and cultural tourism experiences. Using examples from British Columbia, this webinar will introduce case studies and several valuable resources.
This one hour webinar will provide participants with valuable insights and straightforward instructions on how to use the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada. This document offers results oriented guidance for sound decision making when planning for, intervening on and using historic places, and is the benchmark for heritage conservation practices in Canada.
An understanding of how to use the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada is essential when planning for Heritage Conservation projects, and applicants to the Heritage Conservation Program for the Heritage Legacy Fund are required to demonstrate how their projects conform to the Standards and Guidelines.
This webinar examines how economic information about heritage is gathered and how this information can be interpreted and used to tell a story about heritage conservation in BC.
The process of designing survey questions around the goals of the Heritage Branch and the story we want to tell will be discussed in light of the importance of the information and its possible uses. Participants should leave this webinar with an understanding of the importance of economic information to heritage and with a base level understanding of the design of economic impact surveys and the interpretation of the results.
This one hour webinar will introduce Part 27 of the Local Government Act which outlines the tools and activities that are available to municipalities concerning heritage conservation. Also discussed are the incentives municipalities can provide for heritage conservation. Lastly, this webinar will examine the provincial government’s Heritage Conservation Act and its implications for local governments, including archaeological assessments.
To coincide with the 2016 Heritage Legacy Fund application cycle, Heritage BC will be offering a one hour webinar on Grant Writing. This webinar helps participants prepare clear, realistic and comprehensive grant applications that secure the funding needed to make a project successful! Grant applications are an ideal platform to talk about your proposed project, and to demonstrate your organization’s capacity to complete the work as proposed. Aspects of grant writing discussed in this webinar include organizational readiness, narrative, budgets, and letters of reference. This webinar is especially useful for those who are applying to the Heritage Legacy Fund.
