Pre-Budget consultations for 2023 Federal Budget
In advance of the upcoming federal budget discussions by the Finance Committee in the House of Commons, the CMA has submitted a brief outlining some of our sector’s most pressing matters. The submission gives three primary recommendations:
Recommendation 1: That the Government of Canada establish a funding component within the Museum Assistance Program (MAP) to support repatriation of Indigenous Belongings
Recommendation 2: That the Government of Canada establish a funding component within the MAP to support capacity-building for Indigenous cultural centres and Indigenous-led heritage organizations.
Recommendation 3: That funding for the recommended dedicated MAP components be incremental to current 2022 MAP allocations.

Visual Arts Alliance Pre-Budget consultations submission
The CMA also worked with our partners at the Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) to complete a submission pushing for stronger support of the visual arts. Most notably, Recommendation 9 called for a “review and update the National Museum Policy to reflect the significant new realities the visual arts sector is facing, as well as to support the sector-wide implementation of UNDRIP and support for Indigenous self-determination in the heritage sector.”
