The following notes accompany the COVID‑19 Emergency Support Fund - List of recipients resource available on the Open Government Portal.

  1. The report contains consolidated information from the Department’s Grants and Contributions Information Management System (GCIMS) and the Department’s financial system (SAP). It includes the name of the recipient who was awarded funding under the Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sports Organizations (i.e. Client Name), the intended purpose of the funding (i.e., Project Name) and the name of the program administering these funds. The amounts represent the total funding paid to each recipient, for each project.

For the Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sports Organizations, these organizations include Canada Media Fund Corp., Factor, La Fondation Musicaction, and Livres Canada Books. The list of recipients who were awarded funding from these organizations must be obtained directly from these organizations.
