More about the 2018 National Trust for Canada Conference
The 2018 National Trust Conference will explore the transformative power of heritage to help turn places around, galvanize communities, and create fresh options. Bringing together the cutting-edge of heritage thought and practice – in Canada and abroad – the conference will emphasize interdisciplinary insights on such diverse topics as heritage-led development, sustainability, museum/historic site regeneration, and Indigenous heritage.
Opportunity Knocks is inspired by Fredericton, a vibrant mid-sized city renowned for its east coast warmth and charm. Home to one of the first universities in North America, Fredericton also boasts a world-class art collection, a vibrant farmers’ market, and a historic garrison district – all woven into the fabric of a picturesque downtown on the banks of the Saint John River.
