|Ontario is providing more than $4 million to 54 cultural tourism organizations through the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund to help develop, promote and present high-quality, high-profile events that strengthen the economies of communities across Ontario.
Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries announced the recipients from the latest rounds of funding.
“Ontario’s heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries were among the first and hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic – and will take the longest to recover,” said Minister MacLeod. “To support the province’s economic and social recovery, it is critical that our government continues to support organizations that are finding new ways to engage with and reconnect Ontarians, while preserving jobs and supporting local economies. Our investments through the OCAF program continue to deliver impressive cultural and economic benefits that help to strengthen our culture and tourism sectors in local communities across the province.”
We are thrilled with this news and are excited to continue supporting many organizations throughout our beautiful province as we begin reopening and enjoying the amazing arts and culture events and activities.
