Welcome to the Tunnel: How did we get in? And how do we get out?

November 16, 2022 - 19:00 - 20:00

Do you have a passion for the preservation of built heritage? Join Marc Denhez, lawyer and adjudicator with over 30 years’ experience in the law of built, natural and intangible heritage, and Heritage Ottawa for an evening lecture series on the challenges facing the growing “fix-up” industry and the challenges it faces when it comes to reconciling reuse and heritage preservation with budget restrictions.

In Ontario, one in every eight buildings was constructed before World War II. The fix-up industry pumps tens of billions of dollars annually into our GDP. But if it is so economically vital, Marc Denhez asks, why is it still so hard to target even the best-of-the-best for reuse, instead of a trip to the dump? How did we get into this tunnel?
