PASO Coalition Meets with Ontario Arts Council Senior Staff to Discuss Cuts to Arts Sector

Executive Directors representing the Coalition of Provincial Arts Service Organizations (PASO), met with senior staff at the Ontario Arts Council to better understand the nature of forthcoming cuts to arts funding that were announced in a letter sent by the OAC to operational clients dated October 22, 2014.

PASO requested the meeting after learning that the Ontario Arts Council plans to address a projected funding gap for 2015-2016 by reducing all operating and project grants with a 5% cut across the board, effective April 1, 2015, for a total of $2.6 million. These cuts will apply to all 550 organizations that receive OAC operating grants.
