Canada Cultural Spaces Fund
New: Supporting the Foundations of Cultural Infrastructure Initiative (supplemental funding for 2022-2023)
The objective of the Supporting the Foundations of Cultural Infrastructure Initiative is to help alleviate the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic for Canadian not-for-profit professional arts and heritage organizations.
It provides financial support to existing Canada Cultural Spaces Fund (CCSF) recipients with approved funding for a project that is currently under way, and which has experienced cost overruns or project-specific revenue losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Canada Cultural Spaces Fund (CCSF) supports the improvement of physical conditions for arts, heritage culture and creative innovation. The Fund supports renovation and construction projects, the acquisition of specialized equipment and feasibility studies related to cultural spaces.
The CCSF is supporting cultural infrastructure projects across the country. Find out where they are in your region through the Investing in Canada Plan Project Map.
