The City of Vancouver has a central role in safeguarding the future of historic places. While the federal and provincial governments each have a role in recognizing historic places and supporting conservation, key opportunities sit with the municipality including protecting heritage property from demolition, and enabling and incentivizing its preservation and use. The City as well as the Vancouver School Board and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation are also stewards of many heritage buildings and sites through direct ownership and management of them.
