Heritage Markham was established by the City in 1975 as permitted by the Ontario Heritage Act. Its job is to advise and assist Council on all heritage matters affecting the community.
Comprised of ten volunteer representatives of the community appointed by Council and three members of Council, the Committee meets once a month as a whole to review applications and projects. Heritage staff from the Planning and Urban Design Department provides technical assistance to the Committee.
Heritage Markham meets at 7:15 PM on the second Wednesday of each month. The Committee normally meets in the Canada Room at the Markham Civic Centre.
