Register your historic place for Canada Historic Places Day!
It’s almost summer and it’s time to register your historic site for Canada Historic Places Day. If you missed it last year, Canada Historic Places Day is a partnership between the National Trust for Canada and Parks Canada that has as its goal to boost visitation to historic places across Canada.
This summertime celebration includes:
- A website where historic places can register and be promoted locally and nationally.
- Exposure via a national advertising campaign that brings attention to historic places across Canada.
- A $1000 prize for historic places that participate.
- Marketing materials and training for participating historic places to use to promote their historic places locally.
- A social media contest with a $1000 prize to promote visitation to sites.
What are historic places expected to do:
- Be open to visitors on July 7.
- Have someone available to greet visitors on July 7.
- Consider waiving your entry fee or plan a special event (not mandatory).
We hope you will join us in this nation-wide celebration. Register your historic place today!
