Immigration Minister Announces Major Investments in Local Performing Arts

On June 26, 2024, Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced significant investments in local performing arts as part of Budget 2024. Recognizing the vital role of community facilities, such as libraries and cultural centers, in fostering community spirit, the Federal Government has committed to enhancing infrastructure in various cities and towns.

A substantial $31 million will be directed towards the Canada Arts Presentation Fund over the next two years. This fund aims to support local artists, create jobs, and boost tourism by enhancing the cultural vibrancy of communities across Canada.

As part of this initiative, $800,000 will support TOHU, a prominent performing arts theatre in Montreal, and the Festival Montréal Completement Cirque, known for its awe-inspiring circus programs. These investments are expected to bolster Montreal’s vibrant arts and culture scene, unifying communities and providing a platform for local talent to shine.

In addition to the focus on arts and culture, Budget 2024 includes provisions to ensure a fairer tax system and enhance living conditions across communities. These measures emphasize building a fair Canada for every generation, addressing both economic and social needs.
