2015 Federal Budget Analysis

The Canadian Conference of the ArtsCanadian Arts Coalition and Saskatchewan Arts Alliance published the analysis of the 2015 Federal Budget which examines federal funding for the arts and culture sector for the 2015-16 fiscal year.

The broad conclusion of this analysis is that while this pre-election budget does not contain any major changes to cultural funding by Ottawa, arts and culture do not figure amongst the political priorities of the government. It is imperative that arts and cultural organizations take advantage of the federal electoral campaign to advocate for support for the cultural sector and see which party will commit to doing so.
