Resources from B/A’s webinar with Minister Guilbeault

Business / Arts along with Global Public Affairs held a special webinar with the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage to learn what measures the government is taking to assist the art sector. We received an overwhelming response to the webinar and we plan on hosting more in the near future to assist this sector through this unprecedented time.

While the Minister could not answer all of the questions posed, his team provided some resources which may be of help. Please see the below links for more information:
