Vancouver Heritage Foundation promotes the appreciation and conservation of our city’s historic places for current and future generations.
VHF does this by creating opportunities and resources to learn about Vancouver’s history and heritage places, and providing practical support for the successful conservation of historic buildings and sites.
Spend the day with VHF, Nikkei National Museum, Japanese Canadian Hastings Park Interpretive Centre Society and civic historian John Atkin. Explore the site of the 1942 Japanese Canadian detainment with fellow teachers and learn how this 140-year-old city park has evolved in a three-part professional development session for educators.
Did you know that VHF has an interactive map of buildings and sites found on Vancouver's Heritage Register? Join VHF and SplitMango Media for a free lunchtime session from 12:00-12:45 pm to learn about the history of the project, explore all of the upgrades to the newly updated Heritage Site Finder, and discover the many ways you can use the map to explore heritage places in Vancouver.
Join developer Joe Carreira, architect Taizo Yamamoto and heritage consultant Elana Zysblat as they share the story of this unconventional project, which they saw as an innovative solution to the challenge of preserving the history and built heritage of the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.
