Celebrating Arts, Culture and History in Madawaska

Government of Canada provides funding for four Madawaska area organizations

EDMUNDSTON, NEW BRUNSWICK -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/14 -- Department of Canadian Heritage

The Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada and Member of Parliament (Madawaska-Restigouche), today announced a total of $146,300 in funding for four organizations in the Madawaska region on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.

Four projects will be undertaken in the Madawaska region thanks to funding provided through two programs: the Museums Assistance Program and the Building Communities through Arts and Heritage Program. Residents and visitors will be able to discover and enjoy unique experiences involving Brayon, Aboriginal, Acadian and Francophone arts, culture and history.
