Top Ten Endangered

Call for Nominations! Top Ten Endangered Places List

LET US HEAR FROM YOU -- DEADLINE IS MAY 9, 2014

The Top Ten Endangered Places List is released annually to bring national attention to sites at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. From unique 19th-century landmarks to simple vernacular housing, stone railway stations to Modernist airports, heritage districts to single buildings, the list has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.

Heritage Canada The National Trust uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:
•    Significance of the site
•    Urgency of the threat/potential for a positive and creative solution
•    Community support for its preservation

If you know a historic site that should be included on our list, tell us about it today. Forms must be submitted by May 9, 2014.

Along with our annual Top Ten list (view past listings here), HCNT also draws attention to heritage sites already lost
