    The National Trust for Canada – APT Joint Conference, CAPITALizing on Heritage, that wrapped up October 14, was the largest heritage conference ever held in Canada with 1,133 registered delegates, 7 streams of programming, 190 speakers, and 123 sponsors. Thank you to all the participants for making this year’s conference one for the history books.

    In case you missed it, here are some memorable moments from the conference:

    “Historic buildings are part of the solution to climate change … The environment and the economy go together.”

    The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change

    “The conservation of historic places is not a sacrifice, it’s the intelligent thing to do … Maybe we are beginning to accept the idea that we are part of places, rather than the owners.”

    John Ralston Saul, Keynote Speaker      – watch his keynote address –

    “The heritage conservation world needs to step in and provide green, sustainable solutions. It’s up to us to weigh in. Let’s get energized. Let’s get busy!”

    Carl Elefante, 2018 President-Elect, American Institute of Architects (Washington, USA)

    “To meet our 2030 targets, we need to reduce our energy consumption from buildings and construction by 42%. Reusing buildings will need to be a crucial part of this.”

    Edward Mazria, Founder & CEO, Architecture 2030 (Albuquerque, USA)

    “An Indigenous architect we worked with told me, ‘If you want to be stewards of the land, build with what is around you, don’t use new materials if you can work with existing ones, and don’t waste.’”

    Janna Levitt, Principal, LGA Architectural Partners (Toronto, ON)

    “Reconciliation is larger than healing the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. It is about understanding how to live on this earth … together.”

    Alfred Waugh, Owner, Formline Architecture (Vancouver, BC)
