Community Services

Arts, Culture & Heritage Services

The mandate of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Department is to create an environment of culture in the city that ensures arts, heritage and culture play a strong role in place making, community building, tourism and economic development by focusing on transitioning from the current “grass roots” approach to arts and culture, to one that embraces a fuller range of opportunities from beginner/recreational to professional.

The focus will be placed on activities that fast track the growth and development of the city’s arts and cultural community, foster a thriving and vibrant arts scene, activate city streets, preserve and promote our heritage, and enhance the overall experience for residents and visitors.

The Arts, Culture & Heritage Department  will also provide a readily accessible and direct operational resource with which external arts and cultural community stakeholders can consult and partner. 

The department is divided into the following sections:
  • Arts Services
  • Community Cultural Development
  • Museum & Heritage Services
  • Major Events & Film
