The National Circus School receives $300,000 in funding as part of the Quebec government's Economic Recovery Plan for the Cultural Sector (Plan de relance économique du milieu culturel). This Plan has enabled 117 arts training organizations to receive $3,059,118 in additional support.
The Minister of Culture and Communications, Nathalie Roy, announced the additional funding on Wednesday, December 9. This operating support for the fiscal year 2020-2021 will enable the School to offset losses due to the closure of stages and to health measures imposed in the spring of 2020.
