Abstract: 

This research examines the City of Victoria’s heritage program, which comprises of civic plans, policies and associated agencies, to understand whether or not it can meet the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action. I have argued that the City of Victoria’s heritage program must be adapted to include intangible cultural heritage to support decolonization and the representation of Indigenous cultural heritage. Intangible cultural heritage offers an accessible way for the field of municipal heritage planning to become more inclusive and supportive to reconciliation.
