The HVACR Heritage Centre Canada is one of the few organizations preserving and studying the history and evolution of the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technologies that have become so central to our modern quality of life. Without these technologies there would be no refrigerated and frozen foods, air conditioning, high efficiency heating or indoor air quality. Please explore this website to find out more about the work we are doing and the technologies we showcase.

The members of the Board join me in thanking our founding partners, The Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada, The Ontario Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Contractors Association, and Local 787, Refrigeration Workers of Ontario, for their public-spirited support.

We are also grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for making the development of this website possible and the Virtual Museum of Canada for supporting the development of our Chilling Out exhibit.
