Heritage Committee

Heritage Week is every February - Ontario Heritage Trust 

The Collingwood Heritage Committee is made of seven members of the community appointed by the Town of Collingwood Council to advise them on matters relating to heritage.  The Committee is administered through Planning Services. The Collingwood Heritage Conservation District Map includes the individual properties which are designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. Committee terms are generally three years in length, with eligibility for reappointment. The Committee is involved in several heritage-related initiatives such as the semi-annual heritage newsletter, heritage grants, heritage awards, and heritage permits. To preserve the Heritage District Properties and designated properties, do not make alterations, or paint a heritage building, or an adjoining building to the district, without first contacting planning@collingwood.ca

Visit the Heritage website for specific property information grant guidelines, instructions on how to apply for a permit, as well as newsletters and award programs.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, committee meetings will be held by Zoom webinar rather than in person for the foreseeable future. Links to join each webinar can be found on the corresponding agenda on the Town's Meeting Portal. The Committee generally meets on the third Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. virtually.
