Government of New Brunswick



Message from Minister John B. Ames

Dear Friends of Heritage:

As Minister for the Department of Tourism, Heritage, and, Culture, I invite you to celebrate Heritage Week 2017, taking place February 13 to 20.

The theme for Heritage Week 2017 is Celebrating 150 years – Célébrons 150 ans. This topic will provide us with an opportunity to recognize New Brunswick’s role in Confederation, as well as to reflect upon the many past contributions made by the people of New Brunswick to our nation of Canada.

Now is the time to begin planning. For this reason, our Heritage Week partners are pleased to provide you with this on-line resource package, commemorating 150 years of New Brunswick’s role in Confederation.

Please take a few moments to think about what you can do to recognize Heritage Week 2017, then plan and register your event here.

All groups and individuals registering events before January 31, 2017 will be recognized with a Certificate of Participation. We will also assist in promoting your activity by publicizing it on this web site, and circulating your information to provincial media outlets.

Heritage Week 2017 offers a fitting opportunity to commemorate our shared past.


John B. Ames
