All Canadians are affected daily, directly or indirectly, by the efforts of Canadian Heritage. The Department, its programs, and the agencies and corporations which are part of the Canadian Heritage portfolio, contribute to the growth and development of Canadian cultural and sporting life, the promotion of a fairer, more equitable society, and the nation's linguistic duality and multicultural character. We also contribute to the vitality of official language minority communities, to promoting awareness and understanding of human rights as well as to the preservation and presentation of Canada's

cultural heritage. The portfolio has developed a strategic approach for the period 1997 to 1998 and 1999 to 2000 based on six key objectives.

The Canadian Heritage Portfolio was created in June 1993 to consolidate national policies and programs that maintain Canada's cultural sovereignty and promote Canadian identity. Bill C-17.3, an Act to Establish the Department of Canadian Heritage, was proclaimed on July 12, 1996.

The Canadian Heritage Portfolio has a variety of instruments at its disposal to contribute to a common national purpose. We foster a strengthened sense of what it means to be a part of the Canadian community. We ensure the presence of Canadian culture in an era of Globalization. We provide Canadians with greater opportunities to learn and understand more about our country and about each other, to involve them in nation-building and to celebrate and recognize Canadian achievements. We ensure protection of our natural and cultural heritage for the benefit of current and future generations.
