Chapter 5 > Table 5.1: New Investments In Canadian Arts and Culture

According to the 2016 federal budget, the Promart and Trade Routes programs have been renamed "Showcasing Canada's Cultural Industries to the World." This line item receives $10m for 2016-17 and is scheduled to receive the promised $25m in 2017-18. The original promise had no timeline, so for now it's in progress - it will be updated as achieved if/when that program gets its $25 million per year, or broken if that hasn't happened by the next election.
