Unveiling of a New Ontario Heritage Trust Historic Plaque in Moose Factory

The Ontario Heritage Trust (OHT) is expanding the narrative about Ontario’s heritage by unveiling customized plaques in communities across the province. The plaques enliven Ontario’s history, sharing stories and languages of the people, places and events that have helped to shape the province.

The OHT works with partners from across Ontario and encourages people in communities to share their own stories, in their own words and in their own languages. Landscapes, traditions, and stories that embody the community and region are reflected, valued and conserved for future generations. The plaques continue to share some of the history and heritage of the area with visitors.

In partnership with MRHHA, the OHT has produced a new plaque which will be unveiled in three languages: Cree, English and French. The writing and research team for this project is as follows:


Cecil Chabot, MRHHA Executive Director and lead writer

Thomas Blampied, Research

Review Team:

Lawrence Martin, Greg Spence, Virginia Barter, Geraldine Govender, Stan Louttit, Bernice Kapashesit, Stan Kapashesit, Paula Rickard, Richard Preston, Bill Louttit

Translation Team:

The plaque will be unveiled at 2 pm, on August 5, at the CCIC with special guests:
