    The AAO is continuously grateful to the the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for the ongoing support of our association through the Provincial Heritage Organization Operating Grant. We look forward to continuing to promote wide public access to Ontario's heritage, and encouraging public participation in heritage conservation activities, with the Ministry's support for many years to come.

    The AAO's website is being transitioned to a new server. Some content is currently unavailable, but the site remains operational. This means that you can still register for events and renew your AAO membership.

    The transition should be complete by the end of July 2014.
