Dear Minister Baird,
Re: Commercial Heritage Properties Incentive Fund Program
I am writing to urge you to re-establish the successful Commercial Heritage Properties Incentive Fund Program (CHPIF) to assist owners of heritage buildings with grants for rehabilitation and upgrading.
The program is critical to assisting owners in the historic Chinatown and Gastown communities in the heart of Vancouver, where much of Vancouver's early history lies.
