The CNE has been cancelled for summer 2021, due to COVID-19, and as a result is facing permanent closure due to the financial impacts of the pandemic:
After 142 years, the CNE, which operates as a non-profit, is at dire risk of closing its gates forever, and in urgent need of financial support from multiple levels of government.
Doug Ford cannot sit by and allow thousands of jobs to be lost.
The Ford government must not turn its back on this cherished summer tradition. The NDP is calling on this government to step in and provide the financial support needed to re-open the gates of Toronto's beloved CNE in summer 2022 and beyond.
