The Canadian Conference of the Arts, the Canadian Arts Coalition and the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance have released an analysis of the 2015 Federal Budget which examines federal funding for the arts and culture sector for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
The broad conclusion of the analysis is that while this pre-election budget does not contain any major changes to cultural funding by Ottawa, arts and culture do not figure amongst the political priorities of the government.
