URGENT CALL TO ACTION
Dear Members, Industry, and Community,
Thank you to everyone who has engaged with our #ForTheLoveOfLIVE / #PourLAmourDeLaScene campaign. It is now critical that we keep the pressure on more than ever.
We need your voice.
In addition to our own efforts, the CLMA is a partner of the Coalition of HardestHit Businesses, and we strongly believe our united voice can make a difference in our industry and others. A recent press release issued by the coalition reported that 60% of Canada’s hardest-hit businesses will not survive if the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) as well as the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) are not extended beyond the June 5th deadline to the end of the year.
As the Federal Budget approaches on April 19, the time is now for a collective final push, engaging Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland and ensuring she hears from you directly; a few clicks can make a difference to future funding for the live music industry.
