Thank you for your interest to sign our letter to the Minister of Finance. The letter writing campaign is now closed. We will continue to advocate for Status of the Artist legislation that includes wording that addresses artist’s socio-economic standing; makes a commitment to developing a labour relations mechanism; and requires periodic reviews of the legislation.
