How You Can Help
We have requested $7.0 million from the province, and another $7.0 million from the federal government through an already approved Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) – a program that specifically identifies “vulnerable populations” as part of its assessment criteria.
The issue is that the federal government will not invest in our project unless the project identifies this as a capital priority.
With an election underway, the incoming government will be required to unveil a new budget and capital plan — and it is our hope that the Indefinite Arts Centre redevelopment project is listed as a priority so we can get this project off the ground and secure additional donors to fund the remaining amount.
During this provincial election, we are asking our supporters to:
- Talk to your local candidates – at events, if they come to your door – about how much this project means to you and why you feel a new home is absolutely needed for Indefinite Arts Centre.
- Come to Indefinite Arts Centre to sign our poster. We plan to send copies of these signed posters to the offices of Joe Ceci (the former Minister of Finance), Jason Kenney (the current leader of the United Conservative Party), Tyler Shandro (the UCP candidate for Calgary-Acadia, the riding where IAC currently sits), and Kate Andrews (the NDP candidate for Calgary-Acadia).
- Share our social media posts that are tagged #ANewHome. Tag your local candidates and tell them that you support our project.
