Be Part of Canada’s Largest Heritage Learning and Networking Event
The Heritage Canada The National Trust conference is the largest heritage conservation conference in Canada. Over 350 delegates are expected in Charlottetown this year and these will come from a wide range of backgrounds from across Canada: heritage advocates, museums volunteers, heritage professionals and architects, municipal planners, academics, real estate developers and the construction industry. Created in 1973, Heritage Canada The National Trust (HCNT), formerly the Heritage Canada Foundation, is a national charity that inspires and leads action to save historic places, and promotes the care and wise use of our historic environment.
The bursary is open to all residents of Prince Edward Island who are active as an employee or volunteer in a heritage organization, industry, development organization, or municipality. More than one representative per organization may apply. Funding will be allocated on a competitive basis to provide equal opportunity to individuals and organizations across the province. Evaluation criteria include a demonstrated interest in built heritage, connection to a not-for-profit organization, as well as the number of people attending from any one organization and/or region.
The bursary program will pay for one full early bird conference registration fee ($350). It will also provide a maximum of $100 for travel/accommodation expenses. If claiming mileage, please calculate exact mileage from point of origin to Charlottetown and return at the rate of 47c/km.
