The 2008 Cultural Heritage Grant Fund was created following the 16th General Assembly of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) held in Québec City in 2008. The success of the event led to the creation of the Grant Fund.

Every year, the 2008 Cultural Heritage Grant Fund awards one or several grants to young Canadians who wish to travel to pursue advanced studies, carry out specialized research or take part in advanced training in the field of immovable cultural heritage.

The Fund is governed by the Fondation Québec philanthrope.
