Abstract (in English)

The Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada is the first-ever pan-Canadian benchmark for heritage conservation practice in this country. It offers results-oriented guidance for sound decision-making when planning for, intervening on and using historic places. This document establishes a consistent, pan-Canadian set of conservation principles and guidelines that will be useful to anyone with an interest in conserving Canada's historic places. Changes since the last edition This second edition of the Standards and Guidelines expands and clarifies the information contained in the original 2003 edition. The revisions in this edition: - Address comments received from users of the first edition of the Standards and Guidelines; - Clarify the relationship between the Standards and Guidelines and a Statement of Significance; - Better explain the conservation decision-making process; - Provide interpretation of the fourteen Standards to clarify these important principles; - Add guidance for typical sustainability-related interventions; - Address new topics such as cultural landscapes, including heritage districts; - Address recent heritage, including the specific issues of conserving modern materials and assemblies; - Improve the guidance provided for engineering works; and - Provide a more comprehensive set of Guidelines for Archaeological Sites generally, and in a specific setting.

Les Normes et lignes directrices pour la conservation des lieux patrimoniaux au Canada est un manuel de conservation de portée pancanadienne qui constitue le premier document de référence de ce type jamais développé au pays. Il présente des directives axées sur des résultats qui permettront de prendre des décisions éclairées en ce qui a trait à la planification et à l'utilisation d'un lieu patrimonial, ainsi qu'aux interventions souhaitables dans ce même lieu. Le document établit un ensemble pancanadien cohérent de principes et de lignes directrices en matière de conservation qui seront utiles à quiconque s'intéresse à la conservation des lieux patrimoniaux du Canada. Les modifications depuis la dernière publication La deuxième édition des Normes et lignes directrices explicite et clarifie les renseignements contenus dans la publication originale de 2003. Les révisions apportées : tiennent compte des commentaires reçus des utilisateurs de la première édition des Normes et lignes directrices; clarifient le lien entre les Normes et lignes directrices et un énoncé d'importance; précisent le processus de prise de décisions en matière de conservation; interprètent les quatorze normes pour clarifier ces principes importants; ajoutent des conseils pour les interventions types relatives à la durabilité; abordent de nouveaux sujets tels que les paysages culturels, dont les arrondissements historiques; traitent du patrimoine récent, dont les questions précises de la conservation de matériaux et d'assemblages modernes; donnent de meilleurs conseils pour les ouvrages de génie; fournissent un ensemble plus complet de lignes directrices pour les sites archéologiques en général et dans un contexte particulier.
