The Trust envisions an Ontario where the places, landscapes, traditions and stories that embody our heritage are reflected, valued and conserved for future generations.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Awards, administered by the Ontario Heritage Trust, are prestigious awards that recognize exceptional contributions to heritage conservation, environmental sustainability and biodiversity, and cultural and natural heritage. These awards are presented annually at a ceremony at Queen’s Park in Toronto

As directors, White and Hugli track the fairs’ activities, organize the fairs’ community networks, gather data and report to OHFA’s executive, auditors and supporters. The program coordinates over 20 communities representing more than 20,000 youth, annually. This program is supported by 4,000 volunteers and thousands of work hours.
