Heritage is for everyone. It should be accessible to everyone.
As one of the world’s most diverse cities, Toronto is privileged to contain numerous layers of heritage: the natural heritage of our parks and ravines, the cultural heritage showcased in our communities, the built heritage we experience daily, and the archaeological underpinnings beneath us. We must focus our collective energies on the diverse spaces, stories, and traditions on which Toronto is built to develop a community-based view and interest in heritage.
Heritage creates social cohesion.
Heritage is a positive force for economic development.
Heritage is sustainable.
