Cultural Policy Still In Process Of Being Renewed

A set of directives for culture in the province penned over ten years ago is still in the process of being rewritten. 

Last year, the government announced they were consulting with residents and cultural stakeholders to update the current cultural policy. 

The Minister of Tourism, Heritage and Culture Trevor Holder tells CHSJ News they had an election promise to renew the document, and in the meantime, there have been a host of public engagement opportunities around the province over the last year. That public consultation component of the cultural policy renewal has already wrapped up.

The last cultural policy was adopted back in 2002 under Premier Bernard Lord.
