Canada Council for the Arts unaffected by federal budget cuts

Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore delivered on last week’s promise that there would be some “good news” for the Canada Council for the Arts in the federal budget, which dropped this afternoon.

Arts organizations breathed a sigh of relief at news that the arms-length funding agency will maintain its current funding level of $190 million. An official statement released by the Canada Council says it is “enormously heartened by the positive message sent by the 2012 budget.”

The fate of the Department of Canadian Heritage’s other programs is not as clear, however. According to The Globe and Mail, the department, which administers the Canada Book Fund, will receive one of the biggest cuts at 5.6 per cent of its overall budget.

As expected, public broadcaster CBC will also see 10 per cent of its budget cut over three years.
