Federal ministers visit QAHN

Federal ministers visit QAHN and Townshippers' Association

--March 12, 2024.

QAHN President Grant Myers and Executive Director Matthew Farfan (right and second from right, respectively), along with staff and board members from Townshippers' Association, welcomed federal National Revenue Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau, who is also the MP for Compton-Stanstead (which is home to the QAHN office) and Minister of Canadian Heritage Pascale St-Onge (MP, Brome-Missisquoi) to our offices today for a much-welcome announcement about core funding.

The occasion of the visit was the announcement of a modest two-year increase in core funding for both organizations. QAHN's Matthew Farfan emphasized during a press conference that the new funds would help to maintain QAHN's regular high-calibre programming, but also to offset inflation.
