The relationship between the Directory of Federal Real Property (DFRP) and the Directory of Federal Heritage Designations (DFHD) is not one-to-one as some heritage designations are not captured by building but rather by property.

Approximately 85% of the recognized and classified federal heritage buildings listed in the DFHD are matched in the DFRP. Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada and Parks Canada are continuing to work with federal custodians to reconcile the remaining records.
