The Government of Canada owns hundreds of iconic lighthouses like the one above – but earlier this year, it declared more than 500 of them – including many of the most historic ones – as “surplus.”
That means many of these important local landmarks and historic icons are at risk. Already neglected, starved for essential maintenance and care, and often located on remote, weather-ravaged sites, Canada’s historic maritime symbols face an uncertain future.
Local groups want to help. But, they are under pressure to find the money and the means to save these iconic structures. You can help too.
Call on the Federal Government now to invest in the efforts of local groups and communities that are committed to saving Canada’s lighthouses for future generations.
