“A country without appreciation of its heritage is not a country”
– George Hunter.

Our mission is to create a history of Canada through photography.

If you are a photographer, researcher, historian, educator, film maker, or a proud Canadian, the Canadian Heritage Photography Foundation (CHPF) is your window into our country’s rich past.

Our mission is to restore, digitize and preserve Canadian heritage photography.

We are thrilled to own the collection of George Hunter, our first benefactor’s life’s work.  George Hunter is one of Canada’s greatest photographers!
