Sneak Peek! Top Ten Endangered Places 2016

Get a sneak peek of the National Trust for Canada’s 2016 Endangered Places List.

Each year the National Trust for Canada releases a Top 10 Endangered Places List to bring national attention to sites at risk. The 2016 list will be released on May 26. They are the buildings and structures where history was made — literally. But sadly, many of these important edifices are badly in need of repair.

This year Canada’s History has teamed up with the National Trust to bring you sneak peeks of these sites. In the slideshow above you will see snapshots of a few sites and below you can see the geographic locations for all ten sites. Do you recognize any of these endangered places?

The 2016 list includes:
One throughout Canada
One in Vancouver
Two in Alberta (Edmonton and Lamont County)
One throughout Saskatchewan
Two in Ontario (Belleville and Collingwood)
One in Laval, Quebec
One in New Brunswick
One in Newfoundland and Labrador
