More support for multicultural groups and media
Ontario’s multicultural communities benefit from the work that not-for-profit organizations and ethno-cultural groups do to promote diversity and inclusion.
In 2014, you elected us to build Ontario up. Since then, the Ontario Liberal government has supported the Multicultural Community Capacity Grant, which helps newcomers and ethno-cultural groups participate fully in Ontario society.
But we are hearing from people that we need to do more. Multicultural organizations need support to plan long-term initiatives. Ethno-cultural groups want news and other content about their communities available online and on their mobile devices.
That’s why the Ontario Liberals will increase support for multicultural groups and media. Our plan will:
- Add a $2 million capital stream to the Multicultural Community Capacity Grant
- Create a new $6 million multicultural media fund to help content producers better reach their audiences and increase capacity in the sector
- Continue to support multicultural festivals and celebrations through the Celebrate Ontario program
