Physical Description: 

The Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN) is a non-profit, non-partisan umbrella organization engaged with its members in promoting preservation of the built, cultural and natural heritage of Quebec.

QAHN aims to advance knowledge of the history of Quebec’s English-speaking communities by informing, inspiring and connecting people through its activities. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Quebec history, heritage and culture.

Founded in June 2000 under the theme, Building a Future for our Past, the provincial organization now functions as a volunteer-based network of Individual, Core and Affiliate members. In August 2009, delegates to QAHN's annual general meeting formally approved a new five-year strategic vision for the Network.

QAHN encourages cooperation, communication among members, and assists member societies and organizations to obtain resources and related services for their activities and facilities.

Members include individuals interested in anglophone heritage in Quebec, and organizations such as historical and genealogical societies, heritage foundations, community and research groups, museums, archives, and libraries.

QAHN publishes and distributes Quebec Heritage News , a bimonthly, English-language history magazine. The magazine features profiles of remarkable people, events from the past, exclusive book and museum reviews, insight into contemporary conservation issues and province-wide event listings of heritage and cultural activities of special interest to Quebec anglophones.
