Increase of the Canada Arts Presentation Fund

On March 19, 2019, as a result of collaborative advocacy efforts with the Canadian Arts Coalition and Festivals and Major Events, the Government of Canada announced a $16 million increase over two years to the Canada Arts Presentation Fund as part of suite of touring and presenting investments in the 2019 federal budget. This investment has a two year term, and we must immediately start preparing the field for a renewal in 2021.
