Heritage Properties

The Ontario Heritage Act requires us to keep a register of property that is of cultural heritage value or interest. The register is commonly known as the Municipal Heritage Register (MHR) and includes:

  • Property that has been designated under Part IV (individual) or Part V (heritage conservation districts) of the Ontario Heritage Act; and,
  • Property that has been listed as a non-designated property of cultural heritage value or interest.

A property can only be designated under Part IV (individual) of the Ontario Heritage Act and therefore placed on the Municipal Heritage Register following consultation with both the Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee which acts at the Township's Municipal Heritage Committee and the property owner. The individually designated property is subject to a designating By-law that identifies the reasons for designation and a list of heritage attributes.

Steps to list a non-designated property:

  • Identification of properties of cultural heritage significance. Submissions from the public are welcome.
  • Recording of the building through photos and a survey of the architectural characteristics .
  • Historical Research on past ownership, architect and signif-icance to the development of North Glengarry through the use of archives, the land registry and other resources.
  • Presentation to Council of a statement of significance of each property for approval by formal resolution.
  • Publication of the listed building on the North Glengarry Heritage Register.

How does Listing Affect My Property?

Being identified on the North Glengarry Heritage Register :

  • WILL NOT increase your taxes;
  • WILL NOT impose restrictions or obligations with regards to obtaining a permit for renovations or restoration;
  • MAY allow you to access grants through the Community Improvement Plan (CIP);
  • MAY enhance the resale value of your property;
  • WILL foster civic identity and pride by drawing attention to the heritage assets of the community;

An index of designated and listed properties of cultural heritage value or interest is available through the Township's Deputy Clerk for interest sake and information purposes.

We attempt to keep the Municipal Heritage Register current, accurate and complete; however, we reserve the right to change or modify the register and its contents at any time without notice.
