National Trust and APT Conference 2017

A historic capital city and a major milestone offer the perfect opportunity to exp lore how people, policy and preservation practice intersect to renew landmarks, protect what matters, and create vibrant places.

Ottawa is the place to be for the Canadian Confederation’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

Embracing the historic opportunity, the Association for Preservation Technology International and the National Trust for Canada have joined forces to create CAPITALizing on HERITAGE, expected to be the largest ever gathering of conservation practicitioners and advocates in Canada. Conservators, architects, engineers, heritage planners, craftspeople, policy makers, construction managers, cultural landscape specialists, and strong community voices will come together to share and showcase the best in technology, policy, means and methods for preserving and renewing heritage buildings, districts and engineering works.

 Ottawa is a veritable heritage hub: the ancestral territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg; a logging town at the confluence of three rivers, transformed to serve as the seat of Canada’s national government; a modern research, academic and high-tech hot spot, alive with innovative conservation, construction and development projects led by both “Town & Crown”, or private and public sectors. The conference will capitalize on this rich blend of history, place, ritual and expertise, for a truly memorable and inspiring event.
