Québec City’s archaeological master plan and the provincial Cultural Heritage Act
Author(s): William Moss
The City of Québec works closely with public and private partners to assure the preservation and enhancement of its archaeological resources. The City is preparing an archaeological master plan for its territory including four historic districts, one of which is a UNESCO world heritage site. The plan is being developed in the context of renewed provincial heritage legislation and the adoption of a revised urban master plan required under provincial legislation. The archaeological master plan will be accompanied by policy and programs designed to foster public and promoter participation in the process. This paper will address challenges to policy and program development. A particular emphasis will be put on meeting expectations expressed in the new provincial Cultural Heritage Act, heritage legislation being a provincial responsibility in the Canadian context.
