Provincial plaque background papers

When the Ontario Heritage Trust produces a provincial plaque, it engages a historian with subject-matter expertise to prepare a detailed historical background paper. For some of these topics, these papers are one of the few public records available. The Trust is committed to sharing these historical background papers. As we work to expand the narrative around certain under-represented topics and tell a more inclusive history of our shared past, we will continue to add these background papers here.
