COVID-19 Update for April 9, 2020

April 9, 2020

In response to current federal and provincial government restrictions, OAC has decided to not award new grants for activities involving travel or in-person gatherings taking place before June 30, 2020. This policy applies to all project programs that support touring, performance events, rehearsals, workshops, conferences, etc. Recent applicants who have proposed such activities scheduled to take place before June 30 will be invited to provide revised project plans. While we don’t yet know how long restrictions will continue to be in place, OAC will monitor provincial and federal advisories and may extend this date if required.
