Empowering Racialized Artists and Journalists

Breaking down systemic barriers in our media and cultural sectors ensures that Canadians from all backgrounds have their experiences and perspectives represented.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Move forward on supporting productions led by people from equity-deserving groups working in the Canadian audiovisual industry.
  • Supportthe production of news in underserved communities with $50 million over five years through the Local Journalism Initiative.
  • Develop a new $50 million Changing Narratives Fund to empower diverse communities, including BIPOC journalists and creatives, with the tools to tell their own stories and promote diverse voices in arts and culture and across media.
