Resources for Canadian artists, writers and media workers during COVID-19 shutdowns

UPDATE, March 20, 2020: Hello all! I’m now working with CBC Arts to maintain this resource list. New updates will be found HERE. I will no longer be updating this doc except with journalism related resources. Please keep sending me resources as they become available!

Much thanks and love to the Americans who started the inspiration for this doc: Nicole Brewer, Ann Marie Lonsdale, Quanice Floyd, Tiffany Wilhelm, Brian Herrera, Hannah Fenlon, & Clementine Bordeaux. To see American/International resources, visit this website.

You can send information or resources to H.G. Watson at hgwatson7@gmail.com. This document will be updated continuously.

I will not accept requests to edit this document — please email me or reach out on my social media (@HG_Watson on Twitter and Instagram) if you want to add something.
