Grant recipients are required to use both
the OAC logo as well as the Government of Ontario logo when recognizing their OAC funding. The OAC logo should always appear to the left
of the Government of Ontario logo.
The logos must be used at a size that is legible, and relative to the context in which they are being used. They should be proportionate with logos of other funders providing a similar level of support.
Logos must be used to acknowledge funding in the following ways:
- in all print and digital advertising and promotional materials
- on websites
- in program guides for events or festivals
- at events, exhibitions or workshops
- on virtual platforms or streaming sites where OAC-funded projects are presented
- in books, periodicals and other literature published with OAC support
- If the author’s work was supported by OAC but the publisher was not, please specify this by saying “the author wishes to thank the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario for their support,” for example.
- on CDs, DVDs and other packaging or materials
- in film and video credits
There are a few, very limited exceptions to the logo requirements. In instances where the design area is physically too small to include the logos (e.g. postcards), the following sentence may be used instead of the logos:
We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario for their support.
