For Local Governments

The spirit and character of our province is largely defined by its unique history and heritage.  Local governments, Municipal Heritage Advisory Committees (MHACs) and local heritage organizations play a major role in protecting and promoting the province's rich and diverse heritage.

The Heritage Resources Branch has produced a series of guides designed to help communities recognize, protect, conserve and promote their historic places.  These guides are intended for municipal councils and staff, heritage committees, and other organizations or individuals who want to learn more about heritage conservation in Saskatchewan.

Developing Your Heritage Inventory is intended to assist communities in creating inventories of their local historic places.  By following a basic process of identification, research and evaluation, communities will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of their historic places and their history.

The Municipal Heritage Property Designation Guide outlines the key steps involved in Municipal Heritage Property designation under The Heritage Property Act, answers common questions about designation and offers suggestions on how to make designation and heritage property management as easy as possible.
