Heritage Site Owners

Historic Places matter to us. Every community in Manitoba has a few places that are valued for their historic significance. Did you know that there are nearly 800 designated heritage sites in Manitoba?

Find out if Municipal Heritage Designation (PDF) is right for you.

If you or your community group face challenges caring for a historic site and need help planning for its long-term viability, refer to MAKE IT WORK: a Sustainability Workbook for Historic Places (PDF).

Owners of historic buildings can use the information provided in the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada to make good conservation decisions. For information on the importance of maintaining historic buildings refer to the Heritage Buildings Maintenance Manual (PDF) and the Guidelines for the Repair or Replacement of Windows in Historic Buildings (PDF).

Check out the Green Guide to Heritage Conservation (PDF) to discover green design features already found in many historic buildings and further energy saving tips to make your historic property even more environmentally friendly.
