HRC HPI Program gets mention in the HPI Report on Results

Parks Canada has prepared a report on the Results of the Historic Places Initiative.

The University of Waterloo, Heritage Resources Centre's HPI Team received a mention:

Post-secondary education

Post-secondary, professional and trades groups have also used HPI resources to foster the education of a new generation of skilled heritage workers. These initiatives were undertaken after a 2005 study sponsored by the Cultural Human Resources Council and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada identified a need to support heritage conservation activities. Other partners have ranged from the Saskatchewan Architectural Heritage Society and the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, who collaborated to release a new directory of heritage conservation-related services, to Alberta's Athabasca University, which developed an internship program in historical resources. Several training programs for trades professionals traditionally engaged in the heritage field have integrated the Standards and Guidelines into their existing curricula. Ontario universities, including Carleton University, Brock University and the University of Waterloo, have implemented programs engaging their students with local communities in the nomination of historic places to the Canadian Register.
