Inspire Thunder Bay Culture Plan

The City of Thunder Bay and partners are currently in the process of implementing the Inspire Thunder Bay Culture Plan.

The plan identifies community needs and priorities and provides the City with a focus for future cultural development. Developed with extensive community input, the Plan is a guiding, strategic document for the City and its partners and is an integrated approach to community building. It was developed through a process of Cultural Mapping, extensive community consultation and research.

We receive advice and recommendations on the implementation of the Cultural Policy and Culture Plan through advisory committees including the Public Art Committee, the Grant Review Team (GRT) and the Events Advisory Committee.
