Heather Cram

Year of Investiture:

Heather Cram is a senior principal with over 35 years of experience at HTFC. A pioneer in the ecological movement, her work ranges from detailed design and planning for museums and interpretive centres to urban design, community consultation, and community planning. Heather approaches every project with fresh eyes, employing a unique mix of consultation skills and cultural resource management tools to guide her work. Whether planning the evolution of urban neighbourhoods such as the award-winning Wolseley Building Communities Initiative, or creating one-of-a-kind interpretive facilities such as the award-winning Rainy River Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre and National Historic Site, Heather works collaboratively with eclectic client groups to tell their stories with sensitivity, accuracy, creativity, and exacting attention to detail.

Heather's love for Winnipeg has led her from chairing the Manitoba/Winnipeg Fort Rouge Community Revitalization program and sitting on numerous business development zone boards to her recent work on the boards of the Winnipeg Arts Council, the Women's Enterprise Centre and FortWhyte Alive. Heather became a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects in 2009.
