Founded in 1973, the National Trust for Canada is Canada’s national charitable organization that leads and inspires action for places that matter. We are passionate about landmarks that tell our collective story, and our work is equally essential for struggling downtowns, remote regions, and diverse communities. We know historic places are the cornerstone of a vibrant and sustainable future. We offer proven tools to save and renew historic places, and a treasure trove of destinations to visit and discover.
National Trust members are grassroots volunteers, practitioners, professionals, and organizations working to save and renew Canada’s historic places – this includes architects, engineers, developers, trades and craftspeople, elected officials, property owners planners, volunteers, and more – as well as the property owners and cultural tourists who live, learn, work, and play in historic sites and destinations.
