Harper Government Creates Jobs and Growth Through Investments in Culture in British Columbia

VANCOUVER, March 20, 2012 - New support for arts and culture organizations will help create jobs and growth throughout British Columbia, thanks to investments by the Government of Canada. Support for 182 projects was announced today by the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. Minister Moore was joined by leaders of British Columbia’s cultural community.

The funding supports a wide range of arts organizations and projects across the province, including important upgrades to Dance Victoria’s performance studio, as well as support for the Victoria Conservatory of Music, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and the Bicentennial of the City of Kamloops in 2012.

“Our Government received a strong mandate from Canadians to invest in the economic future of our country, which must include investing in culture,” said Minister Moore. “By supporting these activities, our Government is delivering on its commitment to support our arts, culture, heritage, Aboriginals and official languages while delivering jobs and growth throughout British Columbia.”

“We deeply appreciate the investment by the Government of Canada in the arts, in our programs, and in our community,” said Fatima Amarshi, Executive Director of the Coastal Jazz and Blues Society, which produces the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. “These activities play a vital role in the lives of Vancouver residents and communities across British Columbia, enriching them culturally, socially, and economically.”

The Government of Canada has provided total funding of $10,599,462 through the following programs of the Department of Canadian Heritage: the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund, the Official Languages Support Programs, the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program, the Canada Book Fund, the Canada Periodical Fund, the Aboriginal Peoples’ Program, the Canada Arts Training Fund and the Canada Interactive Fund. For more information about the projects, see the attached backgrounder.
