The National Trust for Canada is pleased to announce the opening of the nomination period for its National Heritage Awards.
Each year, our awards honour contributions to community, identity and sense of place.
This year, the National Trust is accepting nominations for the following awards:
The Prince of Wales Prize for Municipal Heritage Leadership:
Under the generous patronage of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, this prize is awarded to a municipal government, large or small, rural or urban, which has demonstrated a strong and sustained commitment to the conservation of its historic places.
Gabrielle Léger Medal for Lifetime Achievement:
This award recognizes individuals for their outstanding service to the country in the cause of heritage conservation.
Ecclesiastical Insurance Cornerstone Award:
These awards are designed to bring national attention to exemplary projects that bring heritage to life at sites that serve a commercial, institutional, mixed use or community purpose. The awards recognize transformational places and projects, and the people who have helped make them happen. Nominations are accepted under two categories: Adaptive Use/Rehabilitation and Infill. Eligible projects must have been completed between 2012 and 2017.
The deadline for submission for all awards is April 28, 2017.
