Immigration minister announced significant 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 community facilities, such as libraries and cultural centers, play 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. Of this, $800,000 will support TOHU, a performing arts theatre in Montreal, and the Festival Montréal Completement Cirque's awe-inspiring circus programs. This funding will bolster local artists, create jobs, boost tourism, and unify communities through Montreal's vibrant arts and culture scene. Moreover, Budget 2024 includes provisions to ensure a fairer tax system and enhance the living conditions across communities, emphasizing building a fair Canada for every generation.
