Culture Counts!

October 10, 2018
We hope all enjoyed a great long weekend in Canada’s Capital region – so resplendent in colour and rich in heritage spaces, places and experiences.
As Harvest yields to Halloween, there’s still more to savour and enjoy:  check out our Calendar of Events!
Clearly, Culture is a key contributor to our enviable quality of life in Ottawa.  And to our economy, with Culture and Tourism accounting for close to one in ten jobs.
As the Municipal election fast approaches (on October 22nd) please talk to your Ward and Mayoral candidates about the importance of Heritage and Culture.  And ask them these questions:
If (re)elected, will you:
1. Make Culture one of the official Term of Council Priorities for 2019-22?
2. Champion greater investment in Heritage places, operations and programming?
For more information and greater impact, please see and share the backgrounder prepared by the Ottawa Cultural Alliance.
In our Ottawa, Culture Counts!
