ARTS ORGANIZATIONS FEEL THE HEAT; FINANCE MINISTER SEEKS IDEAS FOR ECONOMIC STIMULATION

Endowment funds have been promoted by the federal and some provincial governments as a prudent way to build financial security and promote longer-term planning; however, given the current economic slow-down, arts organizations and institutions are beginning to feel the pinch as endowments are failing to generate incomes. The National Ballet of Canada is projecting a $900,000.00 shortfall in budgeted revenues due to the current market downturn.

The Canada Council for the Arts dedicates a percentage of the income earned by its endowment to operating costs and grants. Several endowed Canada Council prizes will also likely be affected, perhaps resulting in lower prize amounts or in some cases, delays in the awards themselves. It is important to note that the Canada Council has not indicated how or if the economic situation has affected its operations, grants, or prizes. More >
