Heritage Week 2024

Heritage Day is the third Monday in February and Heritage Week continues through February 25! Check out the #HeritageDayCanada hashtag on social media to see how it’s being celebrated by museums, heritage organizations and communities in Newfoundland & Labrador and around the country!


In 1973, the National Trust named Heritage Day as a national focal point for celebrating Canada’s diverse heritage.

“Why celebrate Heritage Day? Because Canada’s collective story is told through our special places, whether they are historic lighthouses or schools, places of faith, industrial complexes, or cultural landscapes. Our shared heritage in all its forms has the power to create a sense of belonging. Gathering places like town squares, and pow wow grounds, and cultural objects such as artifacts, regalia, and family memorabilia are tangible touchstones with the past that can root us in place and nourish the spirit. Intangible heritage – languages, traditional rituals, music, dance, storytelling, and more – is at the heart of family and community.” – https://nationaltrustcanada.ca/where-to-visit/celebrate
