Support PTM

The Places That Matter plaque project and the Community History Resource website are initiatives of Vancouver Heritage Foundation. Your support will help sustain and grow the project and build awareness and appreciation of the sites and local history recognized through the program.

The Places That Matter plaque project was launched with a grant from the Government of Canada’s Celebrate Vancouver 125 in 2011. This project would not have been possible without the support of our project partners, plaque and presentation sponsors and dedicated volunteers. See our THANK YOU page for the full list of community supporters to date!

The Places That Matter Community History Resource website was funded in part by Heritage BC through the Heritage Legacy Fund and content supported by the Vancouver Historical Society.
