Who Are We?
The International Committee for the Conservation of Industrial Heritage (TICCIH International) is headquartered in London, England, and grew out of the International Committee on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). As the world organization for industrial heritage, TICCIH is dedicated to promoting international cooperation in preserving, conserving, investigating, documenting, researching, interpreting, and advancing education of the industrial heritage. TICCIH has national chapters in nearly one hundred countries and holds a Congress every three years.
In 2015, to bring together industrial history associations across Canada and to represent Canada’s industrial heritage at TICCIH International, the TICCIH Canada website was created by the Canadian Industrial Heritage Centre which has held the national chairmanship of TICCIH Canada ever since.
CIHC has linked its website with TICCIH Canada and continues to add links and communicate with sites across our vast nation. Due to those interested in industrial heritage having regional focuses or interests in a particular sector, it has been difficult to form a national organization. The website we maintain serves as a link between all these organizations. As the National Trust has similar interests, we keep contact with them and encourage them to devote more attention to industrial heritage in their news magazine and at their annual conference.
TICCIH Canada is managed by…
