The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

On­tario wants to see the work of more Cana­dian au­thors in­cor­po­rated into school cur­ric­ula as part of a new pro­vin­cial cul­ture strat­egy. Tourism and Cul­ture Min­is­ter Eleanor McMa­hon says there will also be tech­ni­cal and busi­ness skills train­ing for some of the 280,000 work­ers in On­tario’s cul­tural sec­tor, which adds more than $25 bil­lion a year to the econ­omy. McMa­hon says a new fund will be cre­ated to sup­port cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties in First Na­tions com­mu­ni­ties.
