We connect people with the stories of our city. EHC provides leadership, support, and programs to help Edmontonians research, preserve, interpret, and advocate for their heritage.
An Edmonton that embraces its diverse heritage, inclusive of all people, communities, and cultures on Treaty 6 territory, consistent with principles of truth and reconciliation, and engaging with the past to create a vibrant future.
The Edmonton Heritage Council has a mandate to serve as a leader in advancing the City of Edmonton’s cultural plan The Art of Living: A Plan for Securing the Future of Arts & Heritage in the City of Edmonton: 2008-2018
Success for EHC?
Indications of our success in achieving our vision include the committed and informed participation of Edmonton’s citizens in heritage, the support of heritage by educators and the support of heritage by government, business, and public institutions.
