Minister's Message

Hello, I’m Mélanie Joly, the Minister of Canadian Heritage.Every day, I use my phone, my tablet and other devices to access music and apps, to watch movies and shows, to read, and to research contemporary works of art. As a Montrealer, I also use social media to discover and share cultural events and artists in my city, with my friends across the country. And that’s true for all of us!

From coast to coast to coast, we all have our own way of enjoying our Canadian culture. And we all understand the important role that culture plays in our lives. As a government, we are proud to support Canadian culture. But we want to do it well.

We're launching a national dialogue on Canadian content; one that will help us adapt our cultural policies to today’s digital realities. Your participation in the Consultations on Canadian Content in a Digital World is vital.

Tell us what’s important to you. Share your ideas to help Canada thrive in a digital world. And to allow people across the country and around the world to keep discovering what makes our culture and creators so great. We look forward to hearing from you!

Make yourself heard.
