London Heritage Awards

Awards Gala takes place Thursday, April 13, 2023

Architectural Conservancy Ontario – London Region
Heritage London Foundation

are proud to present the 16th annual London Heritage Awards

The London Heritage Awards are given out each year by ACO London and HLF in recognition of outstanding leadership excellence in heritage conservation across the London region. Notable past recipients include Jennifer Grainger, Gerald Gallacher, Ann and David Lindsay, and Vintage London, and structures such as the London Normal School, The Unity Project, London Roundhouse, the Clock Tower Inn in Strathroy, and St. Peter’s Seminary, as well as many private homes throughout the London region.

This awards program seeks to recognize individuals and organizations from either the private or public sector who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the conservation of London’s built heritage. Nominees may be proposed for their long-term dedication to the cause, for a single outstanding effort that made a notable difference, for strong leadership and vision in educating the public, or for actions that have brought about a positive outcome for built heritage in our city and region. The awards also seek to honour projects that have actually preserved part of our built heritage. The awards will therefore be given in the following three categories:

  1. To volunteers in the fields of education, awareness, or advocacy
  2. To projects that have preserved built heritage
  3. To professionals who were crucial to the success of a project or who have gone above and beyond their professional role

The number of awards given each year will be at the discretion of the Awards Committee.

How to Nominate

Deadline for nominations was Wednesday, November 30th, 2022.

About the organizers

Architectural Conservancy Ontario – London Region (ACO London) is a volunteer-driven advocacy organization founded over 50 years ago with the threatened destruction of London’s original financial buildings, the Ridout Street Complex, now a National Historic Site. ACO London is committed to conserving London’s heritage architecture through advocacy and education. We support and encourage architectural conservation through reuse and repurposing of older buildings, the creation of Heritage Conservation Districts to protect our historic neighbourhoods, and the active retention and maintenance of London’s unique history as embodied by its built heritage.

Heritage London Foundation (HLF) is an innovative charitable organization founded in 1981 that advocates for the preservation of significant heritage properties. Created when the wrecker’s ball was rapidly destroying many of London’s architectural treasures, Heritage London Foundation now provides viable contemporary uses for two beautiful properties, the Elsie Perrin Williams Estate and Grosvenor Lodge.
