ACP welcomes Budget 2021 commitments and seeks targeted support for book publishers in its implementation

The Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP) welcomes the tabling of Budget 2021, which charts the course for Canada’s economic recovery from COVID-19. In addition to targeted support for the arts and culture sector, the budget includes a much-needed extension of emergency support programs like the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy. These broad-based programs have been instrumental to maintaining industry capacity over the last year. Canadian-owned publishers’ access to additional funding supports will be critical through the pandemic recovery period.
