The Ontario Heritage Trust is a non-profit agency of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Culture, responsible for protecting, preserving and promoting the built, natural and cultural heritage of the province. The Trust's most recognizable work is the Provincial Plaque Program. Since 1956 at Port Carling, it has erected over 1,200 of the now-familiar blue and gold plaques. The Trust also owns a number of historic buildings.
The agency is headquartered at the Birkbeck Building, also known as the Ontario Heritage Centre. It is used as the exterior of the "125th Precinct" in Lower Manhattan in the 2012 television series Beauty & the Beast.
