On June 26th, 2018, the federal government announced a $125M investment in domestic programs and exports in the Arts. This announcement comes on the heels of Ontario’s 2017 commitment to investment $50M annually to boost the culture sector. This is important recognition of the growth and positive impact that arts and culture have in Canada and Ontario, contributing $25 billion and almost 280,000 jobs to the Ontario economy.
Humber College is a leading contributor to this growing sector, and we are excited to see commitment at all levels of government to increasing the number of jobs, building further capacity in the sector, and further establishing Ontario as a leader in arts and culture.
We are excited by the many success stories of Humber alumni, faculty, staff and students making their mark in the world and demonstrating year after year that Humber produces leaders in the Arts and Creative Industries. A few examples of success stories from this past year include:
Other successes have included JUNO Awards, literary prizes, and more – recognition that Humber continues to produce leading professionals in the arts, entertainment and cultural industries.
Congratulations to students, staff, faculty and alumni on a successful year and best wishes for warm summer full of creative projects, rich learning experiences and new friendships!
