Summer 2017 Heritage Continuing Education courses are now available!

Check out the menu to the right for course descriptions, times, and availability…

The Heritage Institute is located at Algonquin College, Perth Campus, Perth Ontario.  Our programs are designed and delivered by experts in their craft.   We emphasize your role as a producer rather than an installer of building products.  We develop your mindset to honour sustainability in all respects (social, cultural, environmental and economic).  We develop your skill-set to set you apart in the challenging field of custom and heritage conservation, preservation and restoration. Authenticity and craft is our calling card.

At Algonquin College, Perth Campus, the Heritage Institute is now in its 27th year of operation.  The Heritage Institute is well known and respected for its Carpentry and Joinery – Heritage Diploma program and its Masonry – Heritage and Traditional Diploma program. Now we are embarking on an expanded suite of offerings tied to heritage construction and heritage arts.


Recently one of the masonry professors Daly Drevnio, along with Dean, Chris Hahn visited the CTV studios in Ottawa to highlight the program.
