The arts play a vital role in Ontario’s communities, enhancing our quality of life and delivering significant economic benefits. Ontario’s arts, culture and heritage sector represents $23.8 billion or 4 per cent of the province’s GDP and over 301,000 jobs. (These figures measure all of the culture sector’s output – including both culture and non-culture products, e.g. a theatre company may generate GDP from both ticket sales – a culture activity – and food and beverage services – a non-culture activity.)
Today, we acknowledge the work of artists and organizations from Ottawa-Orléans who over the past year have received funding from the Ontario Arts Council, the province’s primary funding body for the arts. In 2014-2015, a total of $283,024 was awarded to professional artists and arts organizations in Ottawa-Orléans:
“As the MPP for Ottawa-Orléans, I am extremely proud of our 26 recipients of funding from the Ontario Art’s Council. It is a privilege to have such talented and dedicated constituents contributing to our community.”
-Marie-France Lalonde, MPP for Ottawa-Orléans
