Imagine Canada: What's Next?

"This Fall, you can expect a Speech from the Throne, where the new government will lay out its legislative priorities; the beginning of a new session of Parliament, where newly elected and re-elected MPs will take up their spots in the House of Commons; and possibly a Fall Economic Statement, where we’ll learn more about the country’s economic position as we face the fourth wave. We may also see the public release of ministerial mandate letters, a practice started by the last government that provides interesting insight into the cabinet’s priorities." - Imagine Canada Front Page News, September 21, 2021

The OMA is working together with provincial, territorial, and national museum associations and other affiliates to advocate for the museum sector and the best interests of Ontario museums. As we rebuild from the pandemic, strong support is needed from all levels of government. 

Canada's national, provincial, and territorial museum associations will ask for an opportunity to meet with the Minister of Canadian Heritage in the upcoming months to renew the relationship and advocate for a new National Museum Policy and follow-up on recommendations made for Canada's Federal Budget 2022. The recommendations include to:
  • prioritize an investment of resources toward the review of the national museum policy;
  • extend and increase funding support for museums to reopen;
  • increase funding to Canada’s museums towards $60 million annually; and
  • fund initiatives for digital transformation in museums;
