Plaques/Awards

Fredericton Heritage Trust recognizes individual heritage buildings or sites in two ways. Neither means of recognition results in restrictions in the future use or modification of the property, and do not directly impact on federal, provincial or municipal heritage designation. Members of the public are invited to submit nominations for both of these programs

PLAQUE PROGRAM

Buildings or sites considered to be of significance may be affixed with a bronze plaque with appropriate descriptive text. Residential, commercial and institutional properties may be considered in terms of criteria such as:

  • Date of construction
  • Occurance of an event or activity of significance
  • Architectural style, features, details or as the work of a particular architect, designer or builder
  • Ownership or occupation by a group or individual of local significance

AWARD PROGRAM

Owners or tenants who have renovated heritage buildings (residential, commercial or institutional) in a manner sympathetic to the original character of the building or streetscape may receive a framed Fredericton Heritage Trust pewter logo.
