In 1973, the Waterloo Regional Heritage Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization funded through an annual grant from the Region of Waterloo. Its mandate is to promote and encourage interest in the heritage and culture of Waterloo Region.

The Foundation was not only the first heritage organization set up and funded by a regional government, but it set a precedent in Canada as the first heritage organization allocated a substantial amount of public money by any level of government.


The Waterloo Regional Foundation, through the Heritage Advisory Committee, presents awards to recognize outstanding contributions of individuals, institutions and organizations to heritage preservation in the Waterloo Region.
