The City of Burlington's online Directory of Heritage Properties is a searchable database containing approximately 1100 properties with structures that, because of their age or architectural value, have been identified as Heritage Resources for the City of Burlington.
A heritage property may be designated by a bylaw passed by City Council according to procedures defined in the Ontario Heritage Act. Designation provides a measure of protection against demolition and damaging alterations.
Renovations and alterations to the exterior must be approved by Heritage Burlington or City Council. Interior features are usually not included in the designation, and may be altered without any approval process. Heritage Burlington assists property owners during the designation process, prepares a designation report and advises Council on the reasons for designation.
The Community Heritage Fund is a grant and loan program to assist owners of designated properties with costs associated with conservation efforts and to encourage the preservation of resources with cultural heritage value. For more information, read the Community Heritage Info Sheet.
