The Minister of Canadian Heritage announced a series of changes related to grants and contribution management. These will speed up the turnaround on applications and payments. They will also make multi-year grants more frequent.

“We are pleased with these improved service standards. Faster turnaround and predictable multi-year funding will allow better planning and will encourage innovation by arts organizations.”
—Frédéric Julien, Director of Research and Development at the Canadian Arts Presenting Association (CAPACOA) and Co-Chair of the Canadian Arts Coalition
