Mill of Kintail Museum Special Advisory Committee

A special advisory committee has been struck to examine the future of the R. Tait McKenzie and Dr. James Naismith collections in the museum at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area.

MVCA began reviewing its programs and services in order to manage new funding constraints imposed by Provincial Bill 108 (More Homes, More Choice Act), passed in June 2019. Since the museum is not expected to be considered core to the Conservation Authority’s mandate under the new regulation, MVCA initiated discussions on how to keep the heritage building open for community use.

The goal of the special advisory committee is to reach a viable and sustainable solution that satisfies the community while respecting the Authority’s role and regulation handed down by the Province. It includes members from the Ontario Museum Association, fundraising, municipal and not-for-profit sectors and MVCA staff.
