Rick Keene Music Scene – Government of Canada Invests over $30M to Ensure Recovery of Quebec’s Festivals and Cultural Events

Festivals and events across Quebec, including Les Francos de Montréal and Le Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, receive financial assistance from CED to enhance their activities and position themselves for the future.

Supporting tourism through festivals and events contributes to economic development in Quebec’s regions. In addition to drawing in large numbers of tourists, a significant contribution to the economy, these cultural activities enable Canadians to renew ties in person with their fellow citizens and celebrate together once again.

That is why the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, today announced a total of $30,584,054 in investments to enable 14 festivals and events across the province to position themselves for the future, including by adopting green practices, adapting their facilities to the current public health situation, and enhancing their event experience and international marketing efforts. Further details on 18 projects are available in the related backgrounder.

The Government of Canada is aware of the economic impacts the pandemic has had on festivals and events, the workers who rely on them for their livelihood, and the regional economies that depend on them right across the country. By supporting them, the Government of Canada is helping our regions to position themselves as top tourism destinations and to diversify and dynamize their respective economies, as well as promoting investments in Canada’s tourism assets and products.

“Festivals and cultural events stimulate creation and generate undeniable economic spin-offs in Quebec and across the country. These event ecosystems had to overcome many challenges during the pandemic. Our government continues to demonstrate its commitment to support them through the burgeoning recovery, and residents and tourists from around the world are delighted with the experience. I salute the work done by all the craftspeople who are behind these celebrations that enable us once again to share beautiful moments together and showcase our cultural vitality.”

– The Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Member of Parliament for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED
