List of thematic studies and workshops

9. Appendix – List of Thematic Studies and Workshops

This list includes most of the thematic studies and workshops undertaken at the Board's request. The purpose of these reports has been to provide a broad historical understanding of a topic to support decision making. While many of these studies are now out of date, they still contain significant information and inventories of historic places in Canada and are a significant resource for background information, when appropriate and relevant. 

Reports are in the language of the author and, for the most part, have not been translated.
