Juries are generally used to assess grants to individuals at the Ontario Arts Council (OAC). Juries evaluate
applications using specific program criteria and decide which applicants should receive grants. In programs that
do not have pre-determined grant levels, they also determine the amount of each grant. The number of grants
and the amounts are based on the program budget. Jury decisions are authorized by the OAC Director & CEO.


To safeguard the integrity of the peer assessment process, we do not allow anyone who has a direct conflict of
interest with an application to serve on an assessment panel where that application is to be reviewed. Indirect
conflicts of interest are managed by a standard OAC procedure.
