Liberals follow through on promise to restore CBC funding in budget
March 22, 2016
The cultural sector received a $1.87-billion boost over five years Tuesday in a Liberal budget that aims to reshape the narrative of the economy.
During the campaign, the Liberals promised to restore and increase the CBC’s budget and will begin with a $75-million injection this year, followed by $150 million a year over until 2020-2021.
According to the 2016 federal budget, CBC receives $75m for 2016-17 and is scheduled to receive the promised $150m per year for all subsequent four years. The original promise had no timeline, so for now it's in progress - it will be updated as accordingly if/when CBC gets its $150 million per year.
