It was during the 1990s that the Pontiac cultural community began to mobilize in order to acquire the resources and coordination it needed to ensure its vitality and growth. Four public consultations were held from April to May 2004 to gather the opinions and desires of the population regarding the cultural future of the Pontiac. These consultations were the source of inspiration for the draft Pontiac Cultural Policy, presented to the public on September 18, 2004. The Pontiac Cultural Policy was unanimously adopted by the Council of Mayors on September 27, 2004.
