Why Register?

There’s nothing like a national celebration to bring a community together. Our hope for #HistoricPlacesDay 2020 is that Canadians will be inspired by places to visit now or in the future and organizers, hosts and volunteers will grow together as a community around a common goal.

Bringing the best kind of traffic – foot

#HistoricPlacesDay is all about increasing visitation to historic places. This year because of COVID-19, some sites may not be open to the public, yet by participating in #HistoricPlacesDay, visitors will be intrigued and plan to visit historic places in the future. Not only will participation enrich the lives of visitors young and old, it will open the door (virtually, and literally!) to discovering new places. 

A coherent & consistent nationwide campaign

Part of the #HistoricPlacesDay strategy is a full nationwide marketing campaign, which ultimately will lead visitors to the website to see all the sites to be discovered. Benefit from this marketing campaign by registering for free on the website, and enjoy the increase in visitation – it’s that simple!

Did somebody say free advertising?

By simply registering on our site as a historic place here, your site will receive thousands of views and an increase in visitation – not only on #HistoricPlacesDay itself, but throughout the year. Through word-of-mouth and social media, visitors will tell the story of their experience – reap the benefits on us!

Easy, simple one-time registration

Registering for #HistoricPlacesDay is as easy as it gets. Tell us about your site, provide some images and your social media deets, and we’ll sort out the rest!
