“My mission to show Canadians, and the world, a little of our country. The more they see something of Canada’s grandeur and diversity of its people, the more they will appreciate it.”
– George Hunter.

The Canadian Heritage Photography Foundation’s (“CHPF”) 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 CHPF is your window into our country’s rich past.
