CULTURE CAPITAL PROGRAM - VOTE 2804

The Culture Capital Program preserves and enhances Ontario's investment in cultural infrastructure. The Ministry works in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism to manage the cultural infrastructure development commitments of the province's $300 million, five-year capital infrastructure initiative - the Sports, Culture and Tourism Partnership program.

The Ministry of Culture is responsible for rehabilitating provincially owned and operated assets which serve as economic catalysts such as the Ontario Heritage Trust. The funding to the Ministry's attraction agencies allows them to undertake repairs and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure, including renovations, building code upgrades, health and safety improvements and statutory/regulatory compliance, to help them remain competitive and enhance the visitor experience.
