TAPA has become aware of planned cuts to the Ontario Arts Council budget (up to 15% of total budget; down to $55 million), to be announced before the end of March.

TAPA is happy to support and share advocacy efforts being led by our fellow arts service organization PACT. At a recent PACT REGION V meeting, PACT shared their current strategy.

Time is of the essence! As the budget will be announced before the end of March, please take the time to write a letter or to reach out to your MPP now. PACT has provided templates for a meeting ask, talking points, and letters attached to this email.

TAPA is also a member of Provincial Arts Service Organizations/Organisations Provinciale de Services aux Arts de l’Ontario (PASO-OPSA), a coalition of Ontario Arts Service Organizations that, collectively, acts as a conduit to over 272,000 creative workers, and artists across the province, as well as to thousands of organizations, large and small, that create and support artistic expression in Ontario. PASO members are aligned on asking the province to sustain the 2022 level of investment at OAC at $65m in the 2023 provincial budget.

Thanks so much for your Advocacy support!
