The Ontario government is developing a culture strategy to define priorities and guide support for arts and culture in the years to come.

The draft Culture Strategy is now ready for input. Provide your feedback on the core elements of the draft until May 13. The final Ontario Culture Strategy will be posted in June.

The government is interested in feedback on the following questions as outlined in the draft Culture Strategy:

  1. Do the Vision for culture in Ontario and the Principles to guide government support for culture reflect what is important to you? Why or why not?
  2. Do you think that the three overarching goals will help to grow and strengthen the culture sector in Ontario? Why or why not?
  3. Do you have any feedback on the proposed initiatives in the document?

You can provide feedback in the following ways:

  • Email:
  • Fax: 416-212-1802
  • Mail: 401 Bay Street, Suite 1800, Toronto, Ontario, M7A 0A7

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
