Building Stories

Building Stories is an online interactive inventory for historic sites in Canada. It goes beyond existing databases to recognize any sites of historic interest, not just designated properties.

The goal is to enable Canadians to take a direct role, first by identifying important community cultural heritage assets using a standardized process and medium, and second by sharing the information that will be easily accessible online.

Building Stories uses tools based on national standards such as the Canadian Inventory of Historic Buildings, to enable students, volunteers and professionals to capture, record, map, share and promote their built and cultural heritage. Users can do this using their computers or Smartphones.
