20th Anniversary of the Humber River's Designation as a Canadian Heritage River with Gary Wilkins
It was thousands of years in the making but in 1999 the Humber River was officially recognized by the federal and provincial governments as a Canadian Heritage River. This year marks the 20th anniversary of this accomplishment. The designation added the Humber to the ranks of some of Canada's most iconic rivers. Want to know more about the Humber's natural and cultural heritage, and how it contributed to the development of the country?
