The National Trust for Canada is now accepting nominations for the 2017 Canada’s Top 10 Endangered Places List

The National Trust for Canada is now accepting nominations for the 2017 Canada’s Top 10 Endangered Places List. Each year, the list shines a national spotlight on historic places at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development or weak legislation.

“Canadians care about their special places, yet they face powerful forces that threaten to destroy them,” said Natalie Bull, executive director. “The National Trust’s Top 10 Endangered Places List has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.”  

First launched in 2005, the list typically includes a wide range of places in danger, from architectural and engineering landmarks to simple vernacular structures, from mid-century-modern icons to heritage districts and sacred Indigenous landscapes. It is compiled from nominations submitted and from reports and news items that the National Trust has been following throughout the year.
 
Inclusion on the List brings national media attention and a welcome shot in the arm for local groups involved in challenging campaigns to save places that matter.

"The Top 10 Endangered Places List has assisted in taking the Nottawasaga lighthouse from endangered place to restored place,” said Robert Square, director of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society. The lighthouse, owned by the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, was named to the List in 2016. The Society successfully mobilized many supporters and completed essential stabilization work before the year’s end.

If you know of an endangered historic place that could benefit from inclusion on the List, tell us about it today! Nomination forms and FAQs are available on our website.
 
Nominations must be received by Friday, March 31, 2017 for the 2017 list, which will be announced in May.
