The Heritage Advisory Board was established in 1979 to advise City Council on heritage issues in Calgary. Eleven members of the public are appointed annually by City Council, including the Director of the Planning & Building Department and one representative from the Building Owners and Managers Association and the Historical Society of Alberta. The chairman is chosen annually by the Board members. The Heritage Planner acts as a non-voting professional resource.

The Heritage Advisory Board meets on a monthly basis except during August. Copies of the Board's agenda are available on the Friday prior to each meeting from the City Clerk. Any member of the public may attend.

The responsibilities of the Advisory Board include:

  • Advising Council on all matters relating to heritage resources in the city of Calgary

  • Reviewing all planning permit applications that may affect designated and potential heritage buildings

  • Recommending buildings to City Council for designation under the Alberta Historical Resources Act

  • Monitoring the effectiveness of the legislation which affects heritage conservation objectives and proposing appropriate amendments.

  • Awarding citations to citizens for significant achievements undertaken on behalf of heritage conservation in Calgary

  • Presenting interpretive plaques annually, during a ceremony at City Council, in conjunction with Community Association and the Chinook Country Historical Society in order to raise heritage awareness
