Theatre Organizations: Operating

Results Announcement

Deadline Date: March 12, 2020

Advisory panels 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.
Due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations that received operating grants in 2019-2020 were not assessed by advisory panels in 2020. All eligible operating grant recipients received the same amount in 2020-2021 as in 2019-2020.
