A parliamentary petition calling for funding for historic places in Budget 2019 is getting traction. Over 1,000 signatures have been secured, but we can reach 10,000 with the help of people like you!
Sponsored by Liberal MP John Aldag, the petition calls on the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to ensure substantial funding for historic places in Federal Budget 2019.
How you can help
1. Sign the e-petition if you haven’t already
2. Share the e-petition with your contacts – can you get three friends or colleagues to sign it too
3. Collect signatures on the paper version of the petition
By adding your signature, you send a message that federal investment is needed to support the efforts of Canadians including Indigenous Peoples, charities and not for profits to save and renew historic places, and to encourage private sector investment and heritage philanthropy.
The goal of the Year of Action to #changethegame4heritage is to secure thousands of signatures, help you meet with your Member of Parliament this summer, and host a Day of Action on Parliament Hill in the fall – just in time for MPs and cabinet ministers to include a substantial fund for historic places in their priorities for Budget 2019. Stay tuned for updates and instructions throughout the summer.
