Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


With acknowledgement that this land is the treaty territory of the Williams Nations and also the traditional territory of other Anishinaabeg peoples, including the Huron-Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville is launching an initiative to recognize and promote its heritage properties, “The Whitchurch-Stouffville Heritage Awards”.



From its founding in 1804, through the pre and post Confederation eras, and into the early 1900s, Stouffville’s built heritage reflects a variety of architectural styles.

Today there are over 700 properties listed in the Town’s “Built Heritage Inventory”. It is with the Town’s rich history in mind, that we are seeking to recognize individuals, corporations and other public or private organizations that have made an extraordinary effort towards the conservation, restoration, or adaptive reuse of a built heritage property within the Town limits.

You are invited to nominate a property or property owner you believe is eligible for consideration and public recognition. Two awards will be granted – one for a commercial property and one for a private residence.

Nominations can be made from February 4 - March 11, 2022. Winning nominations will be announced in March, to be followed by an awards presentation in June.

HAC will review the submissions using the following guidelines and criteria:

  1. the Federal Standards and Guidelines for Conservation of Historic Places in Canada
  2. the Province of Ontario’s Eight Guiding Principles in the Conservation of Historic Properties, and
  3. the Town’s Official Plan
  4. how the project contributes to revitalization of the community and enhances the streetscape, public realm and overall heritage character of the neighborhood
