Open Data

Transparency and accountability to the arts community, the government and the public are important values that guide the work of the Ontario Arts Council (OAC).

As part of the Government of Ontario’s Open Data Directive OAC is pleased to provide lists of past grants, awards and assessors along with other data in machine readable formats (.csv).

On this page you will find links to the various datasets that are currently available in this “open data” format. (For a list and summary information about all current OAC datasets see our Data Inventory.) We will be adding data from other years – as well as including other types of data – as they become available.

We welcome your feedback at info@arts.on.ca.
