The Ontario government is giving three local arts organizations funding to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, remain solvent and prepare for a time when they can fully re-open their facilities, resume full programming and welcome back their visitors and audiences.

Details were announced Tuesday by Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries.

Through the funding, $24 million will be provided to 140 arts organizations in Ontario.

Locally they are:

  • The Art Gallery of Windsor – $214,412
  • Biblioasis Inc. – $53,749
  • Windsor Symphony Orchestra – $207,169

“Arts organizations make an important contribution to our province, providing thousands of jobs for musicians, writers, painters, actors, dancers, stagehands and the many others working behind the scenes,” said Minister MacLeod. “They entertain us, but they also play an important role in the mental health and well-being of Ontarians and an equally important role in the province’s economic and social recovery. Providing the help they need is a critical part of our plan to support individuals, families and job creators impacted by the virus, while laying the foundation for a strong economic recovery.”
