Heritage Week 2017

Ontario Heritage Week 2017 – February 20 to 26

MyOntario – A vision over time

Heritage Week is an opportunity to celebrate our shared heritage – natural and cultural, tangible and intangible. This year – the 150th anniversary of Confederation – is a special moment in our history and a great opportunity for us to explore Ontario’s diverse cultural traditions and imagine our shared future.

During this year’s Heritage Week, we will be launching the Trust’s Ontario 150 project: MyOntario – A vision over time. This provincewide sesquicentennial initiative will help transform how we think about Ontario’s heritage with the goal of continuing to build a rich legacy for subsequent generations.

Let’s celebrate Heritage Week by showcasing our diversity, sharing our stories and creating a record of Ontario at 150 – a record that reflects the breadth, depth and complexity of our great province as we look to the future.

Join the conversation, discover who we are and contribute to MyOntario!
