Telling Ontario’s stories is a significant part of what the Trust does. Our stories make our heritage even more relevant because they put things into context. Instead of just being that old house on top of the hill, it becomes a heritage home with a fascinating past that speaks to the development of our province throughout the centuries.

Join us as we explore some of these stories in greater depth through our online exhibits.

Foundations & Fire: Early Parliament and the War of 1812 Experience at York | John Graves Simcoe – Ontario's First Lieutenant Governor | Samuel de Champlain: Perspectives | Snapshots of Franco-Ontarian heritage | Snapshots of Ontario's sport heritage
