The Arts in Durham Region

We recently asked Provincial candidates these questions.

With the 2018 Provincial Election fast approaching PineRidge Arts Council and Durham West Arts Centre would like to hear your view and commitment on the following.

Most Canadians believe that the Arts are important to the Quality of Life, yet funding for the arts takes a back seat.

  • We were wondering if you will / if you support the Arts and the role it plays in our lifestyle?

  • Should our provincial government take the leadership role financially?

  • Would arts centres be considered infrastructure projects?

  • Will you support an arts centre in Pickering?

  • Comments you would like to add?

We look forward to your replies and will publish all responses on our websites.


Nerissa Cariño ~ NDP ~ Pickering Uxbridge
I am absolutely behind the Arts and building our Arts community.
My personal opinion is that depending on the size and scope of the project, financial responsibility could be a partnership between the 3 governments.
My opinion is that the Arts could be considered infrastructure projects
Will you support an arts centre in Pickering? Yes


Since 1989 PineRidge Arts Council Inc., a non-profit volunteer organization has been dedicated to enhance the quality of life within the community by developing widespread appreciation, support and involvement in the arts.
