The nomination process for Japanese Canadian historic places has been extended to Nov. 30, 2016.
Stakeholders in the Japanese Canadian community requested the extension in order to consider more thoughtful nomination submissions.
Nominations are being sought from the public for historic places with significance to British Columbians of Japanese descent which reflect the development and history of the province.
Nominations can be made and information about the project can be found at the Heritage BC website at: http://heritagebc.ca/japanese-historic-places
Submissions will be evaluated by a selection committee appointed jointly by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Ministry of International Trade, with final decisions to be made in early 2017.
Heritage BC, a not-for-profit, charitable organization, is contracted to administer the nomination process. Its mandate is to support heritage conservation throughout British Columbia through advocacy, training and skills development, capacity building in heritage planning and funding through the Heritage Legacy Fund.
