Canadian cultural industries are in demand around the world. The Government of Canada is committed to helping them reach their full potential. The Creative Export Canada program helps our cultural industries meet this international demand, allowing them share their talent and creativity with the world.
The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage, announced $2,714,400 in Creative Export Canada program funding for five organizations. The projects are focused on the audiovisual, interactive digital media, visual art and design industries.
This funding follows another Minister Guilbeault announcement that $3,371,000 in funding was awarded to eight Quebec organizations through the same program.
Exports are vitally important to Canada’s creative industries. Canadian Heritage’s Creative Export Canada program helps these industries reach their international goals and promotes Canadian creative works abroad. Helping Canadian creators shine internationally also produces economic benefits in Canada as the creative industries create jobs and grow their businesses.
The Creative Export Canada program supports creative projects that generate export revenues and features Canadian creative content. Its mission is to increase the visibility of Canadian creative works in the international market and help increase the profitability of Canadian creative industry exports abroad.
