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.
