Equity Heritage Initiative

Shaping how we tell Toronto’s stories for the future

Youth from equity-deserving communities are critical to diversifying heritage work and yet face systemic barriers to building a career in our sector. The Equity Heritage Initiative is an opportunity to begin transforming heritage work through investments in the next generation of heritage advocates. Through this initiative these Emerging Historians will not only develop the fundamental skills and experiences they will need to excel in the field, but their work will further connect Heritage Toronto with the communities we serve, ensuring our city’s heritage is accessible, relevant, and engaging to all Torontonians.

Our work is most successful when it is donor supported and driven. Please join us in building a more equitable Toronto.
