Issues to be addressed include: physical security (for buildings and premises); collections security (protection from theft and degradation); and virtual security (digital vandalism).

Workshops will be presented in up to four regions of the province and are expected to reach dozens of heritage organizations and heritage leaders around the province.

Project managers Dwane Wilkin and Heather Darch have been engaged to oversee this exciting 15-month project. Stay tuned for updates!
