HCF Accepting Nominations to the 2011

Top Ten Endangered Places List

Submit your nominations to Canada’s TOP TEN Endangered Places List by May 1, 2011

Ottawa, ON March 1, 2011 – The Heritage Canada Foundation is accepting nominations to Canada’s Top Ten Endangered Places List. The list is released annually to bring national attention to sites at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. It has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.

HCF uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:

  • Significance of the site
  • Urgency of the threat
  • Community support for its preservation

If you know a site that should be included on our list, tell us about it today.

Click here for the 2011 Top Ten Endangered Places List Form.

Nominations should be received by Wednesday, May 1, 2011. The 2011 list will be announced in June.

Feel free to contact us if you’re considering a nomination or have any questions.

By email: or phone: (613) 237-1066.

The Heritage Canada Foundation is a national registered charity dedicated to the preservation of Canada’s historic places. Your support is vital to our work. Please join or make a tax-deductible donation today.
