Welcome to the Cabbagetown Preservation Association Website!

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association (CPA) was founded in 1989 to help preserve the architectural integrity and historic character of Cabbagetown.  The CPA was instrumental in the creation of the Cabbagetown heritage conservation districts (HCDs) in the early 2000s.  

These changes in the heritage landscape allowed the CPA to expand its mandate and focus on other aspects of heritage conservation.  The CPA grew and is now running several educational programs that aim at interpreting and better understanding Cabbagetown’s heritage and the significant achievements of Cabbagetown’s, past, present and future residents as well as the history of the area and its stock of buildings and landmarks, including two heritage cemeteries.
