The Ontario Arts Council has announced funding cuts to address a $1.6 million funding gap.  Council plans to reduce all operating grants and all project program grants by 5% across-the-board starting in 2015-16.  This reduction will yield $2.6 million, of which $1.6 million will be used toclose the funding gap, $500,000 to fund new and emerging arts activity, and $500,000 to reward excellence for some highly-assessed organizations in Year 1. 

Note that this policy applies as of 20115-16 so the November 1, 2014 program deadlines will not be affected.
