Who We Are

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.
