ARTS FUNDING IN
ONTARIO
Sustained and reliable funding is essential to
the success of cultural organizations
DID YOU KNOW?
Cultural industries contribute $61.7 billion to the
Canadian economy annually.
Ontario’s arts, culture, and heritage sector
directly contributes $27.7 billion, representing
45% of the total economic impact.
 
The sector is an economic driver, representing
4.1% of Ontario’s GDP, as well as over 300,000
jobs.*

Provincial funding for the arts is administered by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport (MTCS)
through the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF).

demands on institutions. 

Based on a 2017 Nanos
report, 8 out of 10 Ontarians
believe that the Government
should invest in the arts.****

OAAG RECOMENDATIONS
The Ontario Government must reaffirm the intrinsic value of the
arts by adequately funding the MTCS, and key agencies such as
the OAC and OTF.  This includes developing a long-term
infrastructure strategy to invest in facilities for artists, arts
organizations, and cultural centers. The Provincial Government
should also commit to financially support the efforts to improve
arts accessibility to all people across Ontario, regardless of
cultural background, ability, socio-economic status, or region.
