Canada Council unveils some funding details as it rolls out its new model

The Canada Council has released further details about its strategic redesign of its funding model. The dramatic changes are being gradually rolled out. Starting in December 2016 an online portal opens for profile registration and the first program deadline in April 2017.

The six new programs do not all relate to magazine publishing, but of those which apparently do or might be interpreted to, here are some details released today:

  • Professional development for artists (workshops, internships, specialized training) eligible for grant amounts up to $10,000 with applications anytime. 
  • Organizations controlled by artists can apply for up to their three-year average of total revenues to fund Research, creative development, production and dissemination of artistic programming.

  • "Artistic catalysts" are eligible to receive core funding up to 50% of their total revenues for eligible activities including research, creation and project development, including residencies. Artistic catalysts and defined as having "an ongoing contribution to artistic practice and strengthen the cultural life of communities.
  • National Arts Service Organizations (which probably means things such as Magazines Canada) may receive up to 60% of total revenues averaged over the preceding 3 years to fun Member services, networking, shared learning, research and analysis on behalf of the sector. Similar core funding on similar terms is available to support organizations that are involved in ongoing activities, services, shared platforms for the development of a group of artists or artistic practice.
  • Literary publishers with a history of publishing can receive grant amounts up to $300,000 over two years, based on Overall support towards developing and promoting writers through the publishing process. Projects that develop or promote writers are eligible for up to $30,000 annually.
