The Heritage Canada Foundation began the Main Street Canada program in 1979 with the chief goal of revitalizing the downtowns of Canadian cities and towns. The plan started with a pilot project in Perth, Ont., in 1981 and spread to 70 other locations across the country. The program gained international attention, spawning similar programs in Britain and Australia. The program ended in 1994, but smaller groups, such as Main Street Saskatchewan and Main Street Middlesex in Ontario, continue today in that vein.
