Archaeological Master Plans and Heritage-Planning Training
Due to a lack of resources, the provincial government is unable to provide timely training to municipal staff on cultural heritage concerns in the land-use planning process.
TMHC offers Cultural Resource Management seminars to municipal planning departments to help planners implement the provisions of the Planning Act through the identification of archaeological potential and known heritage sites.
It is critical that these concerns are addressed early in the planning phase since discoveries during construction can trigger expensive delays.
TMHC also conducts archaeological master plan studies for municipalities that wish to develop comprehensive heritage planning tools for municipal land-use planning.
