Heritage Toronto builds a better city by bringing people together to explore Toronto’s shared past and peoples’ lived experiences.
Through our programs, including tours, plaques, the Heritage Toronto Awards, and digital stories and exhibits, we engage the public to reflect on the past—both to make sense of our present and to inform our future.
Our city’s heritage is accessible, relevant, and engaging to all Torontonians.
