The Couillard government unveils an important budget for culture- the largest in 20 years. It is marked by an 11% increase in spending for the programs of the Ministry of Culture, a raise of 778.3 million dollar for the cultural sector. Nevertheless, a significant portion of the credits still remains to be specified. 509 million is planned to deploy the next cultural policy. The goal is to bring culture closer to youth and community; nurture creation and excellence; support culture and heritage in all regions of Quebec and deploy Québec’s culture in the digital environment.
108.6 million remain to be defined, currently classified under “other measures of cultural policy”.
We still need to wait for the unveiling of this policy to disclose the the precise orientation of this significant amount.[vc_row][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ width=”1/1″]
