The National Trust for Canada is accepting nominations for the 2016 Top 10 Endangered Places List. Each year, the list brings national attention to historic places at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development or weak legislation. It has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.
Successful nominations will demonstrate:
Submit your nomination
- Significance of the site – tell us why this place matters!
- Urgency of the threat – why is it endangered?
- Community support for its preservation – what’s happening on the ground?
If you know an historic place that should be included on our list, tell us about it today! Click here to submit a nomination.
Nominations must be received by Friday, March 18, 2016. The 2016 list will be announced in May.
Another reason to nominate an endangered place: The chance to benefit from Launch Pad
Thanks to the generosity of Launch Pad donors, two of the sites nominated for the 2016 Top 10 Endangered Places List will receive a Launch Pad mission!
Launch Pad is a new initiative of the National Trust designed to help unlock the potential of places that matter. It brings together local leaders with a carefully assembled team of seasoned experts and young professionals to find creative solutions to help save and renew historic places. Recipients of the donor-funded missions will be selected based on the best fit with Launch Pad eligibility criteria. To learn more about Launch Pad, click here.
Donate today and help us put Launch Pad into action in communities across the country.
