Recommender Grants for Writers

Results Announcement

Deadline Date: January 14, 2022



This is a third-party recommender program. Recommenders are organizations in the arts community authorized by the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) to receive and assess grant applications. Recommenders are each allocated a budget and decide which applications are awarded grants. They also determine the amount of each grant. OAC reviews grant recommendations to confirm applicant and project eligibility and issues grant payments to recipients. Recommender decisions are authorized by OAC’s CEO.

To safeguard the integrity of the assessment process, artists who have a conflict of interest with a particular recommender are not eligible to apply to that recommender. An artist is in a conflict of interest if they are:

  • an employee or board member of the recommender organization
  • a person who reviews applications for the recommender
  • an immediate family member of those described above
In addition, recommenders must not approve grants that will be paid back to them in any way.


Remarque : Ce programme est offert uniquement en anglais.
