Abstract

A parliamentarian requested that the Parliamentary Budget Office prepare a cost estimate of Bill S-202: An Act to amend the Parliament of Canada Act (Parliamentary Visual Artist Laureate). The bill would establish the position of the Parliamentary Visual Artist Laureate. The mandate and administrative structure is intended to be analogous to the existing Parliamentary Poet Laureate (PPL).

The PBO estimates the annual ongoing fiscal impact to be $0.1 million per annum.
