Commemorative intent

Landmarks and symbols of Canadian identity, national historic sites of Canada are first and foremost dedicated to commemoration. Each site has his own significance and contributes, in its own way, to the commemoration of Canadian History. The commemorative intent of a historic site, i.e. the element to be commemorated specifically on the site, is closely connected with the special features that cause its national significance to be recognized and which, in the final analysis, justify its existence as part of the system of national historic sites. Generally speaking, the commemorative intent of a site is defined on the basis of the recommendations of the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada (HSMBC).
