CCA Bulletin 15/11April 15, 2011Federal Election 2011 – The party platforms: what about culture?

The Canadian Conference of the Arts (CCA) has taken the platforms available from the five major federal political parties and broken them down for you. Below, you will find all pertinent elements of the party platforms divided into different priorities identified by the CCA. These priorities are areas of focus for the arts, culture and heritage sector in terms of public investments in culture, cultural policies, regulation and taxation. We have not edited any elements of the platforms: we have simply divided them into relevant categories. We also have not omitted information in any of the sections below. Empty columns indicate that we did not find any relevant information on that particular topic in the respective party’s platform. As a final note, with regards to the Bloc Québécois’ platform, we ourselves completed the French to English translation.
