ValueVaries. The Government of Canada committed $15 million in 2021-2022 to help support the reopening of the arts, culture, heritage and sport sectors.
The Making Cultural Spaces Safe During COVID-19 Initiative (the Initiative), administered by Canada Cultural Spaces Fund (CCSF), is well positioned to help Canadian arts and heritage organizations prepare their spaces to reopen while following public health guidelines. The support can be used for renovating or adapting spaces, and for the purchase and installation of health and safety-related specialized equipment. Examples include the addition of an outdoor programming space, the purchase and installation of plexiglass barriers or improving ventilation systems.V
The following organizations are eligible for funding:
- a not-for-profit arts and/or heritage organization incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act, or under the equivalent provincial or territorial legislation
- a provincial/territorial government and municipal administration and their agencies or an equivalent Indigenous peoples’ institution or organization (Indigenous peoples include Inuit, Métis, Status and Non-Status people)
The Initiative will provide 1-time project-based support to arts and heritage organizations to upgrade their space to safely reopen while following relevant public health guidelines related to COVID-19.
The Initiative aims to:
- increase the number of cultural facilities able to safely re-welcome workers and the public to their spaces
