OTTAWA, ON – May 26, 2015 - The National Trust for Canada has released its Top Ten Endangered Places and Worst Losses Lists, drawing attention to historic places in Canada either threatened or already lost, as part of its mission to raise awareness of the value that historic places bring to quality of life, local identity and cultural vitality.  

The Endangered Places List, compiled from nominations received as well as from news items the National Trust has been following and reporting on throughout the year includes (from west to east):
  • Peace River Valley, Northeast, BC — Hydro power trumps Aboriginal and Natural Heritage. 
  • Point Grey Secondary School, Vancouver, BC — Seismic mitigation program poised to reduce historic school to rubble.
  • East Coulee Bridge, Atlas Coal Mine, East Coulee, AB — Rare trestle bridge needs new lease on life.
  • Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, ON — Feds play fast and loose with a National Historic Site.  
  • Barber Mill, Halton Hills, ON — Stakeholder impasse threatens important industrial heritage site. 
  • Our Lady of Assumption Church, Windsor, ON — Hope remains despite fundraising rollercoaster ride.  
  • Quebec Bridge, Quebec City, QC — Longest cantilever bridge span in the world is rusting away.   
  • Miséricorde Hospital, Montreal, QC — Institutional landmark in need of revitalization. 
  • Sackville United Church, Sackville, NB — Deck stacked against yet another former church building.
  • Belcourt Spirituality Centre, Rustico, PEI — Good faith lacking in Diocese’s dismissal of a cherished community asset.

This year’s Worst Losses lists includes three heritage buildings destroyed by the wrecking ball: Etzio Building, Edmonton, AB; Farnam Block, Saskatoon, SK; and the Stollery’s Building, Toronto, ON.

At the same time, three previous sites named to the Endangered Places list are at a critical juncture: District of Sillery, QC; Bala Falls Cultural Landscape, ON; and the Church-By-The-Sea, NL. Click here for more information.
