Community Connections

The following message was sent out by the City of Barrie Department of Culture last week.

Letters of Support – Cultural Spaces Canada Program


As most of you are aware City Council approved the motion on Monday evening to proceed to allow the Department of Culture to apply for the Cultural Spaces Canada application for renovating #1 Dunlop Street West into a performing arts space. In the application we are required to submit letters of support from potential users of the facility and letters from community supporters. We are calling on you to write letters and submit them to us in the Department of Culture no later than Monday May 25th. The letters should focus on how the development of the property into a proper performing arts space, complete with rehearsal space, front of house, etc. will assist your arts organization, your personal art practice or help in creating a positive influence in the downtown core. Please note this is not just for those vested in the arts, we encourage those of you that own businesses in the downtown to participate and support us in this process. Thank you so much for your consideration and attention to this matter. We, in the Department of Culture greatly appreciate your time and effort.

Letters can be addressed to:
Canadian Heritage
Cultural Space Canada Program
150 John Street, Suite 400
Toronto, Ontario M5V 3T6
