The Heritage Conservation unit provides a rehabilitation grant of up to 50% of eligible costs to a maximum of $75,000 in matching grants. In order to maximize the $75,000 grant, an owner would have to undertake a minimum of $150,000 in eligible rehabilitation work.
It is highly recommended that owners email the Heritage Conservation Unit prior to any rehabilitation work being undertaken.
As designated Municipal Historic Resources, the Oliver Heritage Buildings are legally protected from demolition or inappropriate alteration. Owners are required to undertake the proper rehabilitation of the buildings, in accordance with the applicable Designation Bylaw and the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada, and to the satisfaction of the Heritage Conservation Unit.
After the initial rehabilitation work is completed, an owner is eligible to access maintenance grants from the City on a 5-year cycle. These grants address the maintenance of the identified historic elements of the building, and are up to 1/3 of eligible costs, to a maximum of $10,000 in matching grants.
Designated Municipal Historic Resources also qualify for conservation grants from Alberta Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women. For more information, please see Historic Resource Conservation Grants.
