Enclosed is a reminder of the upcoming deadline for the Grants to Aboriginal Dance Professionals on November 1, 2011.

Applications and support material must be postmarked no later than the deadline.
If the date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline moves to the next
business day. Please note that no extension of the deadline will be granted.

Guidelines and application forms are currently available from the section
or on our website. Please review the program guidelines carefully before completing the application, even if you are already familiar with the program. Some modifications to the program have been made.
It is very important to receive a complete application postmarked no later than November 1, 2011.The Dance Section will not accept incomplete applications -- including all required support material, e.g. video.  Support letters must be included with your completed application and postmarked by November 1st as noted in the guidelines or the application will be considered incomplete.  It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure Support letters are sent with the application.  We will not call for missing material.  Incomplete applications are ineligible and will not be reviewed by the committee.

The Canada Council for the Arts would like to remind you of the Final Report Policy.

Applicants will not be eligible to apply to the Canada Council for further assistance until all final reports on all completed projects have been submitted to the Canada Council and approved by the program officer. This also applies to any other final reports due to programs in other Sections of the Council. This means that any new applications to the Canada Council will not be accepted if you have any overdue reports.

If you are planning to apply to one of our upcoming deadlines, please ensure that all previous reports have been received in all Sections concerned.

It is important to note we will not accept final reports that are sent with a new application. All reports are to be mailed separately and in advance of the deadline. The policy states that all final reports are to be received and approved before we receive a new application.  We will not accept final reports by email or by fax.

If you need to make an extension to your project end date, please fill out the Final Report Due Date Extension Form, which can be found on our website:

Canadian Public Art Funders presents Equity within the Arts Ecology: Traditions and Trends

Canadian Public Art Funders (CPAF) brings you a new research report Equity within the Arts Ecology: Traditions and Trends. The objectives of the research report were intended to provide an overview, through a literature review and environmental scan, of current knowledge and surrounding context on the theme of “equity within the arts ecology” in order to better understand how equity is defined, understood, implemented and measured within the Canadian arts ecology, as well as within a broader international arts context; and Identify key gaps or questions for future research. This report was prepared by Ashok Mathur and the Centre for Innovation in Culture and the Arts in Canada (CICAC) for the CPAF Strategic Development Meeting on Equity on June 13-14, 2011.
