The web magazine Signal Toronto reports that the Toronto City Council has cut part of the cultural grants awarded to the Canadian Opera Company and The Toronto Symphony Orchestra « for not meeting the city’s diversity goals. » The Canadian Opera Company apparently lost $100,000 (from 1.6 million), the Toronto Symphony Orchestra $50,000 (from 1.270.000).

The Canadian magazine says that the reason for the financial punishment is that the advisory panel found that both companies did not score high enough under the criteria of « the city’s diversity and inclusion goals, the governance stability and financial results of the organization, and the impact the organization has in Toronto. »
