2023 ACO Heritage Awards
Is there a person in your community who has made an extraordinary effort to celebrate or protect your local heritage, a meticulously-done restoration project or an excellent adaptive reuse project that really stands out? Nominating them for an ACO Heritage Award will bring their good work to the attention of others, honour their achievements, and encourage others to take similar actions.
Who Can Make a Nomination?
We welcome nominations from across the province and look to the general public, our community leaders, heritage advocates and professionals, as well as our own ACO members to alert us to the outstanding conservation leaders, projects and initiatives that they feel are worthy of provincial recognition.
Who and What Can You Nominate for an Award?
Want to nominate a person or group? Your nominees should be individuals, groups or organizations that are actively involved in heritage conservation taking place in the Province of Ontario. Want to recognize a heritage project? Projects, buildings and sites should also be located in the Province of Ontario.
Recognition is made for achievements, activities and projects that have occurred within the 5 years prior to the nomination deadline date, June 30, 2023.
When are the Awards Presented?
ACO’s Heritage Award nominees and recipients are typically announced in October each year at a lively in-person gala event hosted at one of the outstanding heritage venues in Toronto. This year’s Awards will be held on Thursday, October 13 at the Assembly Hall in Etobicoke, a beautiful adaptive reuse building (built in 1898 as part of the Mimico Lunatic Asylum).
