Some financial aid is on its way to the Stratford Festival following pandemic setbacks.
The federal government announced on Tuesday that it will be giving the festival $10 million from its economic develop agency FedDev.
The festival was cancelled in 2020, but with the new funding, they will be able to extend their 2022 season and produce a total of 10 plays.
The government also announced they'll be giving $1.3 million from their Tourism Relief Fund to seven other projects in the Stratford community.
The Little Prince Cinema, the Guinness World Record holder for smallest purpose-built movie theatre, will receive $100,000.
