About Vancouver Heritage Foundation
Vancouver Heritage Foundation (VHF) is a registered charity that advances the appreciation and conservation of our city’s diverse heritage places and their stories. We raise awareness of the vital contribution that heritage makes to a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable community.
VHF does this by hosting informative events and creating resources about Vancouver's history and heritage places and providing financial and practical support for the successful conservation of historic buildings and sites.
VHF is known for its award-winning educational programs that engage people of all ages with Vancouver’s diverse heritage and its wealth of online resources that build local conservation skills and knowledge. VHF’s grant programs provide financial support and guidance to enable conservation of heritage places, energy retrofits in older homes, and to support new publications relating to Vancouver’s history and heritage.
Programs include the annual Heritage House Tour, the Heritage Hour Lecture Series, the Lunch & Learn Series, Walking Tours, Heritage in Schools, the True Colours historical paint palette, and the WALL public art installation. VHF maintains many popular resources, including the Heritage Site Finder interactive map, the Places That Matter Community History Resource, the Vancouver House Styles web tool, a selection of Map Guides, and Case Studies related to sustainability. Current grant programs include the Heritage Conservation Grant Program, the Heritage Energy Retrofit Grant Program, the Yosef Wosk Publication Grant Program, and Field Trip Grants for local schools.
