CCPERB: A Brief History

1977

In response to the UNESCO Convention, Canada enacts the Canadian Cultural Property Export and Import Act. The Act seeks to balance the rights of cultural property owners with the public interest in cultural property, both by regulating the export and import of cultural property and by creating incentives for donation of cultural property to Canadian museums, galleries, and other designated institutions. The Act also established the Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board.
