Notes on reductions
No reduction to direct funding for artists. More than $2 billion will continue to be invested annually in arts and culture in Canada such as in the Canada Council for the Arts. Less effective funding, however, such as the Cultural Capitals of Canada program, was eliminated.
Funding focuses on areas that have the most value for money and a direct impact on Canada's economic prosperity. Support is focused on digital innovation, music, books and other activities through effective programs that have a tangible impact on Canadians. Less effective programs such as the Canada Interactive Fund were eliminated.
Promotion of and Attachment to Canada
Funding was maintained for effective programs, such as over $80 million in support towards 100,000 youth to learn more about their country. Less effective programs, such as Katimavik, were eliminated. In addition, a more efficient and effective way to promote trade, business, cultural and tourism opportunities resulted in the elimination of International Expositions.
Engagement and Community Participation
Investments in programs that ensure equality of opportunity for all Canadians will continue; however, the grants and contributions component of the Human Rights program was eliminated.
Heritage, Official Languages, and Sport
There were no reductions in these areas.
These measures are focussed internally and will not have an impact on service to our stakeholders/clients. In addition, we will continue to modernize our services and transform our business processes.
