The Association Heritage New Brunswick (AHNB) invites you or your heritage organization to become a member and through this membership to take advantage of a special offer from The National Trust for Canada which may help you or your organization in its membership recruitment. Membership in AHNB entitles you or your members to individual membership in The Trust which includes a subscription to the quarterly periodical Heritage, free admission to National Trust properties in Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Jersey, Australia and the United States, discounted rates for national conferences, voting privileges.

AHNB was established at the 2015 annual meeting of Association Museums New Brunswick (which had been established in 1974) bringing together museums and built heritage interests.  It promises new opportunities and renewed efforts to promote preservation and use of structures in our communities that are historically and architecturally significant.  Museums, in addition to their responsibility to preserve and interpret our history through artifacts, have long demonstrated a commitment to our built heritage legacy – operating in heritage buildings, often having operation of heritage buildings as part of their programming responsibilities, and as knowledgeable supporters of heritage generally.  So the alliance of museum and built heritage workers and supporters results in a strong organization to protect and promote our heritage resources – artifacts and buildings – and use them to inform and enrich the lives of New Brunswickers.

Among the needs identified in the first year as requiring action were:
  • raising the understanding among politicians, business people, planners, architects, developers, realtors and all New Brunswickers of the advantages of preserving heritage buildings;
  • development and implementation of tools that will encourage and assist in the preservation of heritage buildings including effective policies and legislation that control and support preservation;
  • and the introduction of incentives that encourage preservation such as infrastructure investment, seed-funding, tax abatement and other forms of financial support for the renewal and regeneration of heritage buildings.

Other tools identified as important are those that inform and educate people in the requirements and methods for preserving and restoring or adapting heritage buildings such as the interpretation of standards and guidelines for heritage preservation, training, and information on the availability of professionals, tradespeople and materials.

There is a great deal to be done to ensure the preservation and continuing use of our province’s unique and outstanding built heritage and it’s exciting that we are now organized to do it.  We hope that you will join the AHNB in our work to preserve rich heritage of our province.
