The Town of Collingwood’s new Mayor, Deputy Mayor, & Council

CACE Group congratulates the new Town of Collingwood Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and Council.

CACE Group looks forward to ongoing meetings with Council members to provide an overview of the work accomplished over the past three years.

The need for a performing arts centre that can accommodate our homegrown (38 years’ young) Theatre Collingwood, and the growing numbers of talented artists and community organizations, not to mention the many thriving Probus Clubs, GTLLI, Cinema Club, musicians, dancers and many other art and culture groups demonstrates a growing necessity for a larger space to call home.

CACE is passionate about and committed to building an arts, culture, and entertainment centre in Collingwood, servicing the South Georgian Bay region.


CACE (Collingwood Art Culture Entertainment) Group is a local grassroots group of citizens who are very passionate and committed to building an arts, culture and entertainment Centre in Collingwood.


To establish Collingwood as the centre of art, culture and entertainment in the South Georgian Bay area.


To build a world class adaptable, multi purpose Centre that is commercially sustainable by attracting major artists and productions while supporting local artists and programs in the community.

Our goals are to:

  • Promote all art forms across all ages and abilities.
  • Engage the community for input and support.
  • Engage the Town of Collingwood and its Council.
  • Seek professionals for input on all aspects of the project.


The priority is to design and build a Centre that has flexible space and facilities that will accommodate the needs of many types of organizations.

Inclusivity, accessibility, sustainability and community engagement will be the cornerstones of the project.

The Centre will provide capacity to attract world-class artists to perform in our town.


Register your support for building an arts centre in Collingwood. 

We encourage you to reach out to friends and relatives to register their support. This is a project initiated by community members and it is important that citizens show their support.


“The proposed Collingwood Arts, Culture and Entertainment Centre is a worthy and needed facility that I am pleased to support. Not only will it provide a home for diverse professional and local art forms in South Georgian Bay, but it will also be an economic boon for our region, providing direct employment during its construction and operational phases, and significant spin-offs throughout its lifetime.
Best wishes with the project. And thank you for your volunteer efforts on behalf of the region.”
