Greetings friends and colleagues,
The Ontario Historical Society would like to inform you that the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport (MTCS) is pursuing the development of a Culture Strategy for Ontario. The Ministry’s objective is to establish a vision for culture across the province, and they want to know which aspects of Ontario’s culture are valuable to you and your community.
The first months of the OHS Reach project have been very busy with initial research and networking with peer organizations. Along with the Society's Ontario History Committee, OHS Reach has been actively exploring options for the best method of online delivery for Ontario History, and legal support for our copyright law memo has already been sourced.
