New Culture Plan - Coming Soon!

The City is in the early stages of developing a new culture plan for the City of Thunder Bay and its partners with cultural planning consulting agency, Nordicity. The plan's development will span from June 2023 to May 2024 and opportunities for public input will be announced shortly. 

Please check back for details throughout the process. We look forward to shaping the future of arts, heritage, and cultural development with everyone!

Stakeholder and Public Engagement

Thank you to everyone that provided input during the public and stakeholder engagement period. A number of stakeholder roundtables, interviews and community pop-ups took place from August to October.

Input is now being used in addition to sector research and community assessments to help inform the development of the plan.

Inspire Thunder Bay Culture Plan

The previous Inspire Thunder Bay Culture Plan was a guiding strategic document that identified community needs and priorities and provided the City with a focus for future cultural development. The plan has now reach the end of its lifespan, and a new culture plan is being developed to reflect the current and future needs of the sector and wider community.
