Vancouver Heritage Foundation is a registered charity supporting the conservation of heritage buildings and structures in recognition of their contribution to the city’s economy, sustainability and culture.
VHF does this by:
- Developing practical tools, information and incentives to help in the successful conservation of heritage buildings and structures.
- Creating opportunities to access and learn about Vancouver’s heritage buildings.
- Fundraising in the public and private sectors to build an endowment that will protect our built heritage into the future.
- Promoting relationships that support heritage conservation.
Vancouver Heritage Foundation was created as a charitable organization in 1992. The City of Vancouver Mayor and Councillors were VHF’s first Directors and remain Honorary Directors today.
Since 1998, VHF has been governed by a private citizen Board comprised of 15 voting Directors and 3 non-voting members, who are appointed by Mayor & Council.
