THE MURIEL SHERRIN AWARD FOR INTERNATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT IN DANCE:
In a letter to members of the Ontario arts community, Minister Eleanor McMahon outlined the following:
"The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) will receive a $20 million increase over four years. The Ontario culture sector is growing and it’s important that the OAC keeps pace and I look forward to seeing the impact that this increased investment will make.
Dear colleagues in the arts community,
I am writing you today with some important updates on the Canada Council’s portal.
We know many of you are eager to submit your grant applications online. Our intention was to offer that possibility this month. We will, unfortunately, have to delay this launch due to technical issues uncovered in recent testing. We recognize the negative impact of launching a technological solution that would not respond to the needs of the users.
