Indigenous Culture Fund – Logos and Acknowledgment

All Indigenous Culture Fund (ICF) grant recipients are required to use both the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and Government of Ontario logos, in equal sizing, where it is appropriate.

Grant recipients are required to display the OAC and Government of Ontario logos on:
  • all advertising and promotional materials (e.g. posters, bulletins, flyers, print ads) or websites;
  • books, periodicals and other literature published with ICF support;
  • CDs, DVDs, and websites produced with ICF support;
  • performance programs and other materials that support the presentation of an ICF activity.

OAC General Logo Guidelines
  • When placing the OAC logo in materials, do not change its dimensions or proportions. If you use the colour version, please do not modify or substitute the colours.
  • It is preferable to display the logo in full colour or black on a white background or white on a black background.
  • 300 dpi – The minimum resolution for printed materials.
  • 72 dpi – The minimum resolution for websites, e-newsletters and other web materials.
  • The logo should not be screened or be used as a background element or a watermark.
  • The logo should be proportionate with logos of other contributors of equal value, e.g. corporate sponsors.
  • In all cases, the logo must appear at least 0.5 inches or 1.27 cm from the edge of the page.
  • The logo must not be printed or otherwise reproduced at less than 1.9 inches or 5 cm wide.
  • The minimum size for web use is 250 pixels wide.
  • There are a few, very limited exceptions to this requirement, such as postcards, CDs and DVDs, which are physically too small to include the logo at 1.2 inches or 3 cm wide. In these instances only, the following sentence may be used instead of the logo:
    • We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

Government of Ontario Logo Guidelines
  • The Ontario logo should be used only as provided. The visual or structural relationship may not be changed in any way.
  • There is no colour version of the logo. It is preferable to display the logo in a black against a white or light background.
  • When accompanying other corporate logos, the Ontario Logo should be the same size.
  • If you want to also use a tagline, the following sentences may be used:
    • Funded by the Government of Ontario.
    • Funding provided by the Government of Ontario.
