Name of creator
The functions of the Culture Services section started as programming under the Recreation section when it was established in 1951. In 1985, the Community Services directorate was created taking responsibility for the Recreation, Parks, and Family and Community Support Services departments. The responsibility for cultural programming continued to be fulfilled by a programmer in the Recreation department.
In 1988, the name of the Recreation department was changed to the Recreation and Culture department. The Cultural and Creative Programs Director position was reclassified and retitled to the Cultural Programs Superintendent and then the Cultural Development Superintendent.
With the reorganization of Community Services into a division in 1995, the department was again revised to become the Recreation, Parks, and Culture department. The department oversees the Culture Services section and its various business units, including Heritage.
In 2006, Culture Services reorganized into two units: Culture Development, and Heritage and Archives. In 2009, the Archives transferred out of Culture Services section to the Corporate Services division.
Records were transferred in 17 accessions between 2002 and 2018 per the City's records scheduling, retention and disposition schedule. Records were created as per daily business and operation function of the City of Red Deer's Culture Services section.
