Description:
Ontario maintains the Ontario Heritage Properties database which provides a great resource for locating buildings and structures of heritage value all across Ontario. The objectives of this category are to waymark properties listed in this database and comment on the site, its history and any changes you observed from the published description.
Expanded Description:

Every community in Ontario has its own unique heritage. The Ontario Heritage Act enables local municipalities to apply for properties to be designated as being of particular heritage value or interest. When granted, such formal designation gains public recognition for the property and helps ensure that the heritage value of the property is maintained by protecting against inappropriate changes as well as conserving these properties for the benefit of future generations.

Ontario maintains the Ontario Heritage Properties database which is searchable by municipality, as well as other property attributes. It currently contains close to 8000 properties of heritage value all across Ontario and new properties are being regularly added to the database.

As of 2005, the Ontario Heritage Properties Database is no longer being updated as a new system is planned but as of March 2011 is hasn't yet appeared so this category is based on the only currently publicly accessible database.

The objectives of this category are to waymark properties listed in this Ontario Heritage Properties database and add any comments you may have on the property and its history.

Since many of these properties are privately owned, please respect the privacy of the owners and post coordinates and pictures taken from the closest public access.
