Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault has announced that media aid—government funded financial assistance—is on the way for media amidst the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
"In order to get through this crisis, it's crucial Canadians can obtain authoritative, well-sourced, and factual information related to COVID-19. This is why the government of Canada is taking immediate action so Canadians can continue to access diverse and reliable sources of news," said Guilbeault.
In his native French, Guilbeault announced that $30 million dollars would be fast tracked to go to media to help aid in COVID-19 coverage.
This would include a simplified process for magazine and book publishers for fast-tracked access to 2020-2021 money.
