CANADA’S 18 WORLD HER­ITAGE SITES

Travel Guide to Canada - - Table Of Contents -

In 1972, the United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific and Cul­tural Or­ga­ni­za­tion (UNESCO) es­tab­lished, and con­tin­ues to up­date, a pub­lished list of cul­tural and nat­u­ral her­itage prop­er­ties around the world con­sid­ered to be of out­stand­ing univer­sal value to hu­man­ity. The goal is to en­cour­age the preser­va­tion of the iden­ti­fied prop­er­ties both at a lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional level.

En­try and ser­vice fees are charged at most na­tional parks and na­tional his­toric sites, where the rev­enues are kept to sup­port visi­tor ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties. This means that ev­ery time you visit a park or site you are investing in its fu­ture—and in a legacy for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.
