Saint Andrews Civic Trust: Who we are and what we do

The Saint Andrews Civic Trust Inc. is a non-profit corporation which was founded in 1973 and is dedicated to the preservation of the Architectural Heritage and Cultural Landscape of Historic Saint Andrews New Brunswick.

The Civic Trust has over the years operated and delivered programs and services according to a series of objectives which were established in the original documents of incorporation.

These objectives can be broadly described under the following headings:

The promotion of public pride and interest in the history, tradition and culture of the Saint Andrews area.

Work which assists in preserving, restoring, building, or maintaining buildings, structures, and sites for historical and cultural purposes.

The making, collection and preservation of photographs, drawings, documents, descriptions, and other records of our built heritage.

The researching of the history, culture and traditions of the area and the publishing of books, pamphlets, brochures, or the production of technical materials which enhance the understanding of our heritage.

The commemoration of our historic area by the production of signs, plaques, and inscriptions which describe our buildings and sites.

Work with municipal councils and provincial legislators in drafting sound legislative guidelines which will ensure the protection of our rich heritage and assets.
