MEDIA ADVISORY - Doors Open Ontario 2016 continues this fall!

TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - City halls, fire stations, breweries, laboratories, places of worship, cemeteries, water treatment plants, bakeries, theatres, a sugar shack and a working grain elevator are among the scores of fascinating places participating in Doors Open Ontario this fall. From September through October, 24 communities across the province will host their Doors Open Ontario events.

Hundreds of buildings and sites, many not usually open to the public, will welcome visitors on weekends free of charge. Many of this year's sites connect with the program's theme – Medical Science and Innovation – through buildings that showcase Ontario's and Canada's achievements in the field. Please visit the Doors Open Ontario website at for detailed event information and interactive tools to help plan your experience.

Launched in 2002, Doors Open Ontario – a province-wide program of the Ontario Heritage Trust – takes place every April to October. Last year, the program saw nearly half a million participants visit over 1,000 sites in 161 communities, with participants spending as much as $5 million in local economies.
