Canada Cultural Investment Fund
COVID-19 and support measures for the culture, heritage and sport sectors
Learn about the immediate action the Government of Canada is taking to provide support measures and financial relief for the culture, heritage and sport sectors.
The Canada Cultural Investment Fund encourages private sector investment, partnership and sound business practices to help arts and heritage organizations be better rooted and recognized in their communities.
The Canada Cultural Investment Fund provides support through three components:
The Strategic Initiatives component provides financial assistance for projects involving multiple partners that will help arts and heritage organizations improve their business practices and diversify their revenues.
By supporting collaborative projects, Strategic Initiatives encourages knowledge and resource sharing and the strategic use of technologies that will strengthen the business operations of arts and heritage organizations, helping them make stronger contributions to Canadian society and the economy.
To date, 108 projects have been approved for an amount close to $32 million.

The Endowment Incentives component encourages arts organizations to build new revenue streams. Canadians are encouraged to support the arts by providing donations to professional arts organization's endowment fund. The government provides a funding incentive for these donations.
Since its inception in 2001, the Endowment Incentives component has provided a total of $ 287 million in matching grants, leveraging private sector donations of $ 386 million, for a total of $ 673 million invested in 100 public charitable foundations and benefitting the long-term financial health of 266 professional arts organizations across Canada.

Limited Support to Endangered Arts Organizations
The Limited Support to Endangered Arts Organizations component supports those rare instances where a professional arts organization faces the prospect of closure but there is a high degree of support for its continuation and a viable business/restructuring plan. Assistance through this component can enable an arts organization to restructure, so it can continue to contribute to the community it is serving.
