COVID Updates JUNE 18

June 18, 2020

Good Afternoon,

Today we have learned from Canadian Heritage that the application portal has been opened for the $53 million COVID-19 relief funding. I recommend that all museums apply by following the link below. I will be meeting with the Department of Canadian Heritage staff tomorrow afternoon to further discuss the program and details.

Here is the information provided by the department:

Today, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage, confirmed the implementation of the first component of Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sport Organizations, launched in May 2020. This fund, which totals $500 million, is being used to maintain jobs and support the business continuity of organizations impacted by the crisis.

The government is now ready to launch the first component of Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Heritage Organizations. This component provides $53 million in support to organizations with heritage collections through the emergency component of the Museums Assistance Program. Eligible not-for-profit organizations such as museums, archives, historic sites, Indigenous organizations, official-language minority communities, or municipal and university museums with separate budgets, will now be able to apply for funding.

Non-eligible institutions include provincial/territorial crown corporations (although cultural institutions associated with educational institutions or universities would be eligible), zoos, aquaria, public libraries, and other organizations that do not have a heritage collection. Heritage institutions with operating budgets exceeding $3 million are also ineligible at this time.

Since our initial announcement in May, we realised there are very small community museums with smaller budgets that are seasonal, dependent on volunteers, and that may not reopen this summer. We will be adjusting the sliding scale to be able to provide grants below $5,000 that are proportional to those budgets.

For information on Application Guidelines – COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Heritage Organizations – Museums Assistance Program please follow this link.

Heritage organizations eligible for the Museums Assistance Program can now apply online through this new portal. Or https://pch-covid19.canada.ca/en-CA/

We continue to work from our homes during Alert Level 3 keeping our virtual office open. We will provide updates to our members when new information is available. Our social media feeds are active, bringing museum information to our followers. Please join our new MANL Membership Facebook Group, there have been some great discussion at https://www.facebook.com/groups/MANLMembers/. Below you will find our growing list of previous announcements for your quick reference. We hope that you are all safe and adhering to the government recommendations at this time. Remember we are here for you during this time, contact us if you have any concerns. 

Take Care,

Ken Flynn
Executive Director

Museum Resources Award

The Museum Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is proud to sponsor the Museum Resources Award as part of the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Fairs Program, sponsored by the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. They have partnered with the Department of Education and School Boards in Newfoundland and Labrador to manage the annual Heritage Fairs program since 1997.

The Museum Resources Award criteria is based on the project demonstrating use of museum resources for research. One prize is awarded per region, with six regions in total. Each prize includes a one-year MANL membership, an award certificate and a cheque for $50.00.

The Heritage Fairs Program started in 1997 as part of a national initiative to bring history to life for students. Directly linked to school curricula, Heritage Fairs allow students to showcase their history and heritage projects, using a variety of media. Once students present their projects at school fairs, outstanding projects are advanced to a regional fair. Regional or provincial fairs are held in every Canadian province and territory each spring. Six regional fairs are held each year throughout the province.

Newfoundland and Labrador students in grades 4 to 12 may be eligible to take part in the Newfoundland and Labrader Heritage Fairs Program. For more information about the NL Heritage Fair Program, please contact:
