Communities, Culture, Tourism, and Heritage’s Investing in our Future initiative provides a variety of funding programs, grants and awards for individuals and organizations in Nova Scotia. They are an important part of sustaining and growing our culture and heritage sectors. By investing in innovation, creativity and arts, these programs help industries succeed, create jobs, support artists and enhance our communities.
Our culture and heritage contribute much to our quality of life. They enrich our communities and benefit our economy. By investing in these sectors, we realize their tremendous value for Nova Scotians. According to the 2010 Culture Satellite Account figures, arts, culture and heritage contribute about $868 million to Nova Scotia’s economy, and more than 14,000 jobs across the province.
