This chapter reviews the historical development and current legislative framework of archaeological heritage resource protection in Canada. This chapter takes into account the founding of the Western Canadian Archaeological Council in 1960 as the Canadian legislation to protect archaeological heritage resources was woefully inadequate prior to the 1960s, and archaeologists urgently needed to find ways to protect and preserve the diminishing record of this legislation. This chapter highlights several initiatives taken by Canada towards heritage resource protection. It concludes that if there is to be effective archaeological heritage preservation legislation at all government levels in Canada, it is crucial that government, archaeologists, and Aboriginal people recognize and respect the validity of each other's values. They must acknowledge the differences and find common ground to achieve what is essentially the same underlying objective for all concerned.
