The National Trust for Canada recently launched a parliamentary petition sponsored by Liberal MP John Aldag that calls on the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to ensure substantial funding for historic places in Federal Budget 2019.
By adding your signature, you send a message that federal investment is needed to support the efforts of Indigenous peoples, charities and not for profits to save and renew historic places, and encourage private sector investment and heritage philanthropy.
How you can help:
1. Sign the petition
2. Share the petition with your contacts
The goal of the Year of Action to #changethegame4heritage is to secure thousands of signatures, help you meet with your Member of Parliament this summer, and host a Day of Action on Parliament Hill in the fall – just in time for MPs and cabinet ministers to include a substantial fund for historic places in their priorities for Budget 2019. Stay tuned for updates and instructions throughout the summer.
