MINISTRY OF CULTURE

The Ministry of Culture encourages the arts, protects Ontario’s heritage and advances the public library system and cultural
industries in order to maximize their contribution to the province’s economic and social vitality. Through funding from gaming
revenues, the Ontario Trillium Foundation helps community organizations address local priorities in arts and culture, sport and recreation, the environment and social and human services by making strategic investments in collaboration with charities and non-profit organizations.

Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
