New Brunswick has a rich and varied history. From pre-contact times, to European migration and settlement, industrialization and finally urbanization, our province has a human history dating back over 10,000 years.
Likewise, our heritage resources are equally diverse. The places and structures around us, ranging from archaeological sites and earthworks to buildings of every style and type, reflect our colourful past. This legacy helps us to define who we are as a people. We have a responsibility to both our community and our province to pass this legacy on to future generations.
Through the Heritage Conservation Act established in 2010, the government of New Brunswick, through the Minister responsible, is able to designate places that are significant at a provincial level as Provincial Heritage Places.
