Alberta Register of Historic Places
Under the Historical Resources Act, the Minister of Culture may designate any historic resource as a Provincial Historic Resource. The Act also empowers municipalities to designate historic resources of local significance as Municipal Historic Resources. Additionally, historic districts may be designated as Provincial Historic Areas or Municipal Historic Areas. Those resources which have been designated collectively form the Alberta Register of Historic Places.
The Alberta Register is administered through Alberta's Historic Places Research and Designation Program. This program is responsible for identifying, evaluating and designating Provincial Historic Resources, updating and maintaining the Alberta Register of Historic Places, and submitting eligible sites for listing on the Canadian Register of Historic Places.
