Our offices will be closed on July 1 and 2, 2021

June 30, 2021

It has been a year like no other. Throughout COVID-19, OAC staff have worked long hours to respond to the arts community so hard hit by the pandemic. Where we could adapt our activities, we did so to meet the needs that emerged as a result of COVID-19.

In recognition of the hard work that OAC staff have put in over the past 15 months, OAC offices are closed this year on July 2, 2021, in addition to July 1, 2021.

This year’s Canada Day brings a period of reflection on our country’s past and what has been done to Indigenous peoples. We wish everyone quality time not only to cherish loved ones but to contemplate what steps can be taken to support reconciliation.
