Action Plan for Toronto’s Culture Sector

September 2023

The City of Toronto is developing a new Action Plan for Toronto’s Culture Sector, to guide cultural services, policy and programming for ten years spanning 2024 to 2034. The previous culture plan, Creative Capital Gains, an Action Plan for Toronto  [PDF] , was adopted in 2011 and has guided cultural policy and programming since then. The new plan will set out an ambitious vision to strengthen Toronto’s cultural sector and ensure that residents in all corners of the city have opportunities to engage with the arts. It will provide recommendations for the arts and culture sector, film and entertainment industries, and museums and heritage, and provide direction as the City and the sector work collectively to rebuild and address pressing challenges faced by the cultural sector.

In collaboration with Toronto Arts Council, the City will gather information from external interested parties and members of the public through a robust community engagement process that will inform the new culture plan. Monumental has been contracted to develop and implement a public consultation and engagement process that will inform the development of the Action Plan.

Information about engagement opportunities will be posted to the City's website. There is also a subscribe button on the City's page for those interested in receiving updates about the process
