The Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board is now being led by a Brock University faculty member.
Sharilyn J. Ingram, Assistant Professor in the Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture and former director of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, was recently appointed Chair of the federal board for a three-year term.
The independent administrative tribunal, which reports to Parliament through the Minister of Canadian Heritage, determines whether cultural property is of outstanding significance and national importance.
The board aims to protect and preserve significant examples of Canada’s artistic, historic and scientific heritage.
Ingram’s appointment was announced Jan. 7 by Canadian Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly.
