Georgina Heritage Advisory Committee

You are here


Each Term of Office, the Town of Georgina invites community members to sit on the Georgina Heritage Advisory Committee (GHAC).

The Ontario Heritage Act provides that the Council of a municipality can establish a Heritage Committee whose responsibilities include advising Council on all matters relating to Part IV: Individual Property Designations and Part V: Heritage Conservation Districts.

The Georgina Heritage Committee researches and maintains a list of properties, features and areas worthy of monitoring for conservation, establishes criteria for the evaluation of properties of architectural, historical and contextual significance; and recommends to Council properties worthy of designation. Recently the Council of the Town of Georgina supported the GHC’s recommendation to establish a Heritage Register.

The GHC also reviews planning documents, development applications, building permits and sign permits as they pertain to identified heritage resources and review municipal, provincial and federal heritage legislation.
