Posted on

In addition to PromArt ($4.7 million) and Trade Routes ($9 million), the Harper government is also making cuts to the A-V Preservation Trust ($300,000), the Canadian Independent Film and Video Fund ($1.5 million), the National Training Schools Program ($2.5 million), and two programs that provide support to arts organizations — the Stabilization Projects and Capacity Building. The government hasn't called a press conference, or even released a press release on the cuts, instead making the announcement via updates on the programs' respective web pages.
