The NCC manages approximately 1,300 buildings in Canada’s Capital Region, many of which have historical significance. More than 70 buildings managed by the NCC are federally designated heritage buildings.

The heritage significance of buildings older than 40 years is systematically evaluated by the Federal Heritage Buildings Review Office (FHBRO). More than 70 NCC-managed buildings have been designated as “classified” or “recognized” federal heritage buildings. These buildings are protected in accordance with the Treasury Board Policy on Management of Real Property.

The NCC is also the custodian of buildings which, although not designated by FHBRO, are considered to have heritage significance at the local level. These properties include:

National Historic Sites

In addition to designations by FHBRO, six NCC-managed properties have also been designated as National Historic Sites by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.

These are only a few of the National Historic Sites located in Canada’s Capital Region.
