The Trust administers the Provincial Plaque Program and the Premiers’ Gravesites Program. The Trust has unveiled over 1,200 provincial plaques across Ontario to commemorate significant people, places, things or events. The Premiers’ Gravesites Program honours Ontario’s former premiers with bronze markers at their gravesites.
Many other plaques appear across the province – from heritage designation markers to plaques erected by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
Provincial plaques commemorate but do not protect properties. Properties can be designated by municipal bylaws under the Ontario Heritage Act (OHA). Provincial designation is also covered by the OHA.
Applications for the Provincial Plaque Program are available on this website.
The Trust has unveiled over 1,250 provincial plaques across Ontario, including 22 international plaques. Check our Online Plaque Guide for more information.
