Built in 1931, Maple Leaf Gardens is one of Canada’s most iconic buildings. The home of hockey and many historic cultural and political events, the ‘Gardens’ holds a special place in the country’s popular culture.
ERA was privileged to prepare the nomination for Maple Leaf Gardens as a National Historic Site. In June of 2006 the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada met to consider the building’s national significance and recommended its designation. This June we are happy to announce that the Minister of the Environment recently designated Maple Leaf Gardens a National Historic Site.
Stay tuned for information on the plaque unveiling ceremony.
