It's budget time again in the City of Ottawa and staff are proposing funding cuts for heritage, festivals and the arts, from $7.5 million in 2008 to $4 million in 2009.
That's nearly half the funding in an envelope that comprises only 0.35% of the city budget.
Family history is an integral part of the heritage community in Ottawa. We need to hang together, or we'll hang separately.
Show your support by sending a clear message to the Mayor and City Councillors. There's further information in the message below from the Council of Heritage Organizations of Ottawa.
