CARFAC welcomes new Minister of Canadian Heritage

CARFAC congratulates the Honourable Pascale St-Onge on her appointment as Minister of Canadian Heritage on July 26. As a fellow creator with a strong history of leadership, we have no doubt she will be an effective champion of artists’ rights.  

We extend our thanks to Pablo Rodriguez for his exceptional work in this role, and we look forward to working with Minister St-Onge as we advocate for a more equitable future for Canadian artists. 

This includes fulfilling the Federal Government’s commitment to bringing forward Artist’s Resale Right legislation. You can tell Minister St-Onge why this issue matters by writing a letter of support. A template letter is available here.

We also joined a coalition of cultural organizations representing over 50,000 Canadian writers, visual artists, and publishers, calling on Minister St-Onge and Minister Champagne to fix changes made to fair dealing in Canada’s Copyright Act.
