Canada Economic Development renews partnership with the Quebec City International Festival of Military Bands

Agreement with promoter for 2005 and 2006 editions

Quebec City, Quebec, September 12, 2005 - The Honourable Jacques Saada, Minister of Canada Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Francophonie, today announced the awarding of $200,000 in funding to support the promotion and international marketing of the 2005 and 2006 editions of the Quebec City International Festival of Military Bands.

"Since 2000, Canada Economic Development has contributed $50,000 a year to this unique festival that showcases the traditions, art, history and music of military bands in the setting of Quebec's fortified city. We have now doubled our contribution to support the increased marketing of this distinctive cultural event and to better position the Quebec City region on the world stage. This prestigious event generates some $12 million in annual spinoffs, $2 million of that from foreign visitors," stated Minister Saada.

Canada Economic Development's mandate is to promote the economic development of the regions of Quebec. Primarily through financial assistance programs, the Agency elicits and supports the implementation of economic development projects. The two priorities the Agency has set itself are to foster innovation and the knowledge economy in each region of Quebec, and to help communities that are having difficulty adjusting to the new economy. In this way, the Agency contributes to the attainment of the Government of Canada's objective of building the 21st Century economy.
