THANK YOU. In 2017, you helped to raise $145,000 to support public programs connecting our city’s heritage to its people.

Special Achievement Award

In 2005, the Heritage Toronto Board realized that there could be opportunities from time to time when Heritage Toronto might want to recognize outstanding achievement that did not fit under the usual award categories or went far beyond their criteria.  The Board voted to establish a Heritage Toronto Special Achievement Award (SAA).  The award can be given to individuals or organizations not only for their achievements, but also for the inspiration they “can give to others; all of which strengthens Toronto’s heritage community or fabric.”
