Heritage planning elective

Ottawa's rich history is evident through its historic buildings and cultural landscapes and their protection, restoration and celebration are important elements in creating a great city. The purpose of the heritage planning elective is to examine the role of built heritage in the broader realm of municipal planning. The course will begin with an overview of the broad context of heritage planning in Ottawa and also use case studies to look at the day-to-day issues that arise with both small and large scale heritage projects.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • What is heritage planning?
  • Why should we preserve our heritage?
  • Evaluating heritage resources for designation
  • An Introduction to the Ontario Heritage Act
  • Managing change in Heritage Conservation Districts

This session is offered in English only.
You must take Primer I and Primer II before registering for the elective courses.
