Canada Council for the Arts introduces New Funding Model


Canada Council for the Arts is determined to see that their work as a public funder continues to respond to the needs – and the potential – of our changing world. To that end Canada Council has redesigned their funding model in order to more strategically support the creation and wide dissemination of excellent Canadian artworks, to more directly and efficiently support Canadian artists, and to more flexibly and effectively support the development of a diversity of high performing arts organizations.

The 6 new programs are: 

  • Engage and Sustain
  • Explore and Create
  • Creating, Knowing and Sharing: The Arts and Cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people
  • Supporting Artistic Practice
  • Arts Across Canada
  • Arts Abroad
