Canada Council for the Arts announces new funding model

The Canada Council for the Arts has announced six new funding programs that will replace their current 147 granting programs by 2017. These changes have been made to more effectively support Canada's artistic ecosystem in the 21st century, to be as flexible and inclusive as the diverse practices and communities they support, to increase their organizational impact, to bring more great art to more Canadians, and to lessen the administrative burden on artists, arts administrators and on their staff. More information, including several informative YouTube videos are available on the Canada Council's website.
