Information on current City operational and project funding:

**Sent on behalf of Dan Chenier, GM/DG of Recreation, Cultural and Facility Services, City of Ottawa: **

The City of Ottawa understands that the current situation with Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) presents extraordinary challenges for Ottawa's cultural community.

The safety and well-being of everyone is paramount. We recommend staying informed by visiting the [Ottawa Public Health website](www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/index.aspx) for the latest information including self-isolation and preventing the spread. We also encourage you to visit [ottawa.ca](ottawa.ca/en/health-and-public-safety/covid-19-ottawa) for the latest City news regarding COVID-19, including impacted City facilities and services.

We want to reassure you that we are working to expedite funding when possible. We will share more details on the measures we are taking to make this happen as we adjust our processes to a virtual work environment. In the meantime, please see below for some key information.

**Operating funding recipients**
Our priority is to provide stable operating funding without delays. You will not be expected to have replacement programming for events that are postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19.

**Project funding applicants**
Projects affected by COVID-19 may be adjusted or delayed without penalty. Please contact your Cultural Funding Officer for details.

Although Recreation, Culture and Facility Services does not currently have emergency funds available, we are working with all levels of government and cultural organizations to ensure that Ottawa's cultural community has appropriate access to any emergency funding that may become available. We will reach out to our recipients if any opportunities for financial relief are announced.

We encourage you to reach out to us at [infoculture@ottawa.ca](mailto:infoculture@ottawa.ca) with any further questions.

Updates from the Tele-Town Hall with Minister Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Tourism, Culture & Sport this morning:
* Funding for the cultural sector will remain stable. Trillium, Ontario Arts Council funding organizations fully supported. With their new fiscal starting on April 1st, questions about how quickly funding can be dispersed were discussed. Minister MacLeod recognizes this priority and is working with colleagues to support & expedite operating funds
* The more than 400 Ontario Festivals in Ontario remain supported via Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund & Celebrate Ontario Fund
* Province will ensure additional funding and expedited funding will be made available to these sectors
* Minister recognized and heard concerns re layoffs in the cultural industry and how artist's cash-flow and reserves may only last 1-3 months. They are working on a plan regarding the mechanism and timing for releasing cash-flow. Currently collaborating with Feds and Cultural Community; the approach still being determined but understands the priority
* Questions regarding extensions of grant deadlines were raised. They will have more to say on this soon. They are assessing this on a program by program basis and are working to get information out to the community quickly
* Questions regarding if there will be an extended ban for large gatherings or information of when it might be lifted. Response from Minister advised that it changes daily given a new reality. Minister is following directives from the Ministry of Health and Public Health closely. They continue to develop and redevelop plans daily.
* More detailed Provincial Economic Plan announced on March 25th will work to address all these issues in addition to impact on Tourism and Sport.

*Other colleagues on the call, please correct/comment if you feel I've misrepresented anything.
