Since 2007, the Hamilton Municipal Heritage Committee (HMHC) has been presenting the HMHC Heritage Recognition Awards, as part of its mandate to promote heritage.  These awards celebrate the significant contributions of property owners, educators, developers and volunteers in the conservation of Hamilton’s heritage.

On February 24th of this year, during Heritage Week in Ontario, the Hamilton Municipal Heritage Committee announced the 2022 award recipients across 11 categories, including Heritage Property Conservation, Heritage Property Developer, Adaptive Reuse of Heritage Property, Cultural Heritage Landscape, Making Heritage Accessible, Education in Heritage, The Art of Heritage, Heritage Group, Society or Specialty Team, Heritage Streetscape Revitalization, Heritage Volunteer Recognition, and new for this year, Specialized Craft and Trade.  

The HMHC will be recognizing these award recipients, in-person, at their annual Heritage Recognition Awards Celebration in June of this year.

Nominations for the 2023 awards are now open to the public through the City of Hamilton’s website. These nominees are reviewed, and then Council approved.

The Hamilton Municipal Heritage Committee is an Advisory Committee, established under the Ontario Heritage Act to advise Council on identifying, protecting, and promoting cultural heritage resources that make our City of Hamilton unique and diverse. The members are citizen volunteers who are appointed by Council.
