Federal Elections Toolkit

Federal Election Information
Are you ready for The Election? Not to worry we’ve got a handy kit for you.

As a member of the Canadian Museums Association - MAS is coordinating our Election efforts with their national campaign. The three national ‘Key Messages’ are:
1) Building a Legacy for Canada’s Heritage Institutions by reviewing and modernizing the existing heritage programs that support Canada’s museums and galleries;
2) Building a Legacy for All Museums by introducing a short term, national matching donations program; and
3) Building a Legacy for our Country’s Youth by increasing the investment in the Young Canada Works in Heritage Program

Your Kit contains the CMA Key Messages document which provide background information on each of the three points.

It also includes a ‘Saskatchewan Museums Snapshot’ highlighting our sector in the province.

Finally, CMA’s ‘Snapshot of Canada’s Museums’ is also included.

Share the Snapshots and Key Messages document with your friends & colleagues. Ask them to talk about the importance of museums when they meet candidates or are asked what their priorities are in the election. Use the ‘Key Messages’ to ask candidates for a commitment to Canada’s museum sector. Let them know about your museum and how important it is in your community. Remind them that museums are the stewards of our shared tangible and intangible heritage for current and future generations.

I encourage you to use this information whenever you have an opportunity to speak with your local candidates. This is our opportunity to not only bring forward our concerns, but to highlight the many contributions that museums make in Saskatchewan and Canada.

Thank you,
Wendy Fitch
