The Prairies and Northwest Territories Association of Heritage Professionals (PAHP) has not been formally established, but is in the process of creating a chapter of the national Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP).
PAHP will include members representing many areas of expertise from architects to planners and historians to engineers and trades/artisan specialists who are professionally and actively engaged in the identification, conservation, preservation, interpretation and sustainable use of cultural and natural heritage in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and across the Northwest Territories.
The chapter will be:
- a venue for dialogue between heritage professionals and heritage community members
- create opportunities for provincial leadership, continuing education and community outreach
- and, support a network for professional advice and social interaction among the members of the Western and Northern heritage communities.
