2019 Federal Budget Highlights

March’s 2019 Federal Budget includes increases in arts sector funding. The government has committed to $16 million increase to the Canadian Arts Presentation Fund over two years, as well as $20 million over two years to the Canada Music Fund.
Of particular interest to the opera sector is the $24 million over two years to the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program and the Celebration and Commemoration Program.  This dedication of funding to community arts celebrations is complement to the opera sector’s important work in developing their civic practice and deepening community impact.
