The Government of Ontario is no longer supporting community building, arts programming, and support for priority neighbourhoods, announcing a massive cut in funding for Sistema Toronto’s after-school music education and social development program for at-risk children.
The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport announced in late August that the Government of Ontario is cutting the $500,000 in funding promised to Sistema Toronto in May 2018.
Sistema Toronto is an after-school social development program, providing daily free musical and intellectual opportunities to 275 students and their families in neighbourhoods with some of Toronto’s highest child poverty rates – Parkdale, Jane-Finch, and East Scarborough.
The Sistema Toronto team is coming together to continue to provide at-risk children and their families with the support they need. Please help us overcome this funding challenge by donating to Sistema Toronto. Together, We Got This.
