Carleton Place Properties Designated Under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

The Ontario Heritage Act provides for the designation of individual properties (Part IV of the Act) or heritage conservation districts (Part V).  Designation denotes a public recognition of the cultural heritage value of these buildings that are valued by the community for their contribution to our understanding and appreciation of the history of a place, event or people. One of the most important tools used by the Town of Carleton Place to protect heritage resources is the designation of individual properties under Part IV (or districts under Part V) of the Act.
