80 for 80

The Architectural Conservancy of Ontario (ACO) is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the publication of a book, “80 for 80: Celebrating Eighty Years of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario”. The illustrated book documents eighty among the hundreds of buildings and structures across Ontario that ACO has had a hand in saving since it rescued one building, the Barnum House, in 1933. For more information on the book and how to order it, click on this item.

This document reports of the strategic plan that was developed in the spring of 2012
