Advisory panels are used to provide advice and help set priorities in many granting competitions at the Ontario Arts Council (OAC). Advisory panels do not make grant decisions. Officers make final grant recommendations to the OAC Director & CEO and the OAC board based on advisors' comments, OAC priorities, the program budget and the number of applications to the program. In Years 2 and 3 of a multi-year cycle, requests are reviewed by the officer and not an advisory panel.

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.
