2012 Heritage Toronto Awards
What do the world’s only operating double-decker theatre, a book about three English boys growing up in Toronto during WWII, an interactive website about 1,000 post-war Toronto highrises, and an intimate café that serves up stories about local women’s history have in common?
They are 4 of the 14 fascinating finalists that will be vying for a 2012 Heritage Toronto Award next month as Heritage Toronto hosts its 38th Annual Heritage Toronto Awards—the longest-running heritage awards program in the country to recognize and celebrate innovative work and programs that preserve and promote our city’s heritage.

William Kilbourn Memorial Lecture - A Layered City: 200 Years of the Mississaugas and Toronto
The Awards presentation will be followed by the 16th Annual William Kilbourn Lecture, which will be presented this year by Chief Bryan LaForme, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. Two hundred years ago the Mississaugas helped to repel American invaders during the War of 1812. Chief LaForme will discuss the relationship between the Mississaugas and Toronto from the War of 1812 to present day, including the historic 2010 settlement of the original purchase of what is now Toronto that he helped forge with then Minister of Indian Affairs, The Honourable Chuck Strahl.
