National Trust Conference 2015

Heritage Energized
in association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals 
and in collaboration with Alberta Historical Resources Foundation
OCTOBER 22 – 24, 2015
Fairmont Palliser Hotel

Heritage is an energy producer that consistently infuses Canadian communities with cultural and economic vitality, sparks new investment, and grounds us with a strong sense of place. The 2015 National Trust Conference will explore how heritage energy can turn places around, empower people, and create opportunities. It will also shine a spotlight on how the heritage movement itself is being transformed through its evolving relationship with property development, arts and culture, sustainable living, philanthropy, and the cultural diversity of Canada.

The annual National Trust Conference is Canada’s largest event for professionals, practitioners, and volunteers engaged in regenerating and saving our heritage places. As in previous years, the 400-plus participants expected to attend Heritage Energized will come from a diverse range of backgrounds: architects, professionals and trades; planners and government representatives; heritage organizations, volunteers and the general public; and university/college instructors and students.
