Architectural Conservancy Ontario – London Region and Heritage London Foundation present the 12th Annual London Heritage Awards!
This awards program seeks to recognize individuals and organizations from either the private or public sector who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the preservation of London’s built heritage. Nominees may be proposed for their long-term dedication to the cause, for a single outstanding effort that made a notable difference, for strong leadership and vision in educating the public, or for actions that have brought about a positive outcome for built heritage in our City. The awards also seek to honour projects that have actually preserved part of our built heritage. The awards will therefore be given in two broad categories:
- To individuals in the fields of education, awareness or advocacy.
- Projects that have conserved built heritage.
More detailed information about the categories below. The number of awards given each year will be at the discretion of the Awards Committee.
