Top 10 Endangered Places List

The Top 10 Endangered Places List shines a national spotlight on historic places at risk due to neglect or lack of funding. The List brings media attention and gives a welcome shot in the arm for local groups involved in challenging campaigns to save places that matter.

As part of its 100th anniversary celebrations, the Canadian Construction Association has signed up as the sponsor for the National Trust’s 2018 Top 10 Endangered Places List.
