The Ontario Heritage Conference, organized by Community Heritage Ontario, takes place each year to provide education on historical sites, building, restoration and preservation methods along with legal advice on protecting these places. The conference provides a platform for Heritage Professionals to exchange ideas amongst each other and share success stories as well as lessons learned. The conference offer tours and presentations along with networking opportunities.
