Created by the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (HSA) in 1993, the Manning Awards recognize and celebrate the work of individuals, communities, and organizations in preserving and presenting this province’s history and heritage.

The awards honour the late Bill Manning, former Parks Canada Superintendent of Historic Sites for Newfoundland and Labrador, who realized that the preservation and presentation of our heritage needs the involvement of the local community. The award is under the distinguished patronage of His Honour, the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador.
