HERM 327 (2011): Heritage Policy in Canada Report a Broken Link

Heritage is central to Canadian cultural policy and is an important aspect of Canadian social, political, and economic life. HERM 327: Heritage Policy in Canada surveys the historical development of federal and provincial arts and heritage policies in Canada and related ideas of national and regional culture. It uses this framework to discuss perceptions of “culture” as social expression and the role of government policy in a diverse society.
