The Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is using a modern approach to help celebrate the province’s past.

For Heritage Week, the organization is asking people to share local heritage stories on social media using #NLheritage.

“Social media is a great way to share what is happening with heritage in your community,” says Dale Jarvis, the province’s folklorist.

“Tweet a heritage activity, Instagram a heritage building, share some aspect of local history that you love, and tag it using #NLheritage.”

The campaign starts Monday and will continue all week.
