Analysis of the major Federal parties’ electoral platforms

As part of Orchestras Canada’s ongoing advocacy work on behalf of Canadian orchestras, we asked our government affairs consultant, Éric Dubeau, to prepare an analysis of the major Federal parties’ electoral platforms, with a specific focus on arts and culture commitments.

You can find the analysis here. (Updated October 17th)

Here in Peterborough-Kawartha, Orchestras Canada will be participating in an all-candidates meeting on arts and culture on October 9, and Katherine will be asking the candidates to talk about the Canada Council for the Arts.  We’d love to know what you’re hearing from your candidates – feel free to update Katherine by phone (705.243.6640) or email ( if you have insights to share.
