August 5, 2016 – As part of the pre-budget consultation in advance of the 2017 federal budget, CAPACOA submitted a brief to the Standing Committee on Finance. The submission endorses the recommendations of the Canadian Arts Coalition and advance additional rationales from the perspective of the touring and presenting sector.
“The investments in the Showcasing Canada program will positively impact our touring members, and the investments in arts infrastructure will assist our presenting members in the delivery of their arts programs to Canadian communities. However, both investments need to be extended beyond two years to deliver these benefits.”
The brief also highlights several research findings about the need for infrastructure funding, and the benefits it delivers to Canadians and their communities. This kind of input will also be extremely useful for the ongoing infrastructure consultation.
