Federal Government’s Arts Sector Assistance:

In his press conference on April 15, the Prime Minister said that Minister Guilbeault had brought up the challenges of the arts and cultural sector on access to the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), as well as the importance of artists at this time of physical distancing. Here are the key changes:

Emergency Support Fund for Culture, Heritage & Sport Organizations

Phase 1: existing recipients through Canadian Heritage’s arts and culture programs
Phase 2: other arts and culture organizations that do not currently receive funding from Canadian Heritage or another participating federal agency (Canada Council for the Arts, Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada)
