Identifying and promoting our culture...

Bruce County is rich in cultural heritage resources. Past activities of Indigenous peoples, the Great Lakes maritime history, pioneers, and people who founded our towns, villages and early industry all contribute to our cultural heritage. In preserving these resources, we preserve our identity, support tourism and maintain a strong sense of community. Planning can focus efforts on preservation, creating distance between the resource and new development, managing the resource to either keep its value or grow it.

Good planning decisions now will help us inventory and protect our heritage assets, celebrate achievement and nurture our cultural heritage.

Cultural Asset Mapping

Purpose:

Cultural assets are the sources and products of arts, culture, and heritage. They can be either tangible (e.g., buildings, public spaces) or intangible (e.g., stories, songs).

We are asking you, the interested public, to help fill this map with the cultural assets that you know of and that matter to you.
