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.

About Us

We are excited to announce that Jeffery Chong is this year's WALL artist. He has created a piece entitled Home Edition, which is the recreation of a time and a place, portraying Jeffery’s family history, identity and values, and a reminder of how technology and the built environments of the past brought together families in a way that no longer exists.
