Ontario Creates Funding Opportunity
This year, Ontario Creates is offering Ontario magazine publishers up to $75,000 in funding to promote new products, develop existing markets, access new markets, and grow their business. May 28th 2021 is the deadline to apply.
The Ontario Creates Magazine Fund supports the business development of independent Ontario-based magazine publications. The funds are provided to help publishers grow through the creation and implementation of innovative strategies that contribute to business development and marketing objectives. Last year, Ontario Creates approved 42 recipients, providing funding to support business strategies that will help publications reach newer audiences and grow revenue.
“Ontario’s independent book and magazine publishers provide a platform for Canada’s authors and content creators to share their diverse art, ideas and voice with the world. Through Ontario Creates, our government is creating opportunities for our culture sector partners to thrive and contribute to our spectacular double bottom line – the financial bottom line of the province, as well as the equally important bottom line of our cultural fabric and identity.” said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries.
