Bringing the Arts to Life 
In 2018-19, our funding of the arts sector reached a total of $261.8 million with the third installment of funds received as part of the progressive doubling of our budget.  With this extra funding, we’re building momentum in bringing the arts to life to the benefit of all Canadians. 

Today, we’re thrilled to share with you our Stats and Stories web page that will allow you to discover first hand, the impact of those funds in communities across Canada. 
Explore our results: 

  • Open Data tables on the $242.7M in grants and prizes across Canada, $3.3 outside Canada and $14.4M in other programs and activities awarded in 2018-19;
  • A portrait of our impact in 711 communities where grants and prizes were awarded;
  • Detailed funding statistics across our 6 new funding programs and the Digital Strategy Fund;
  • Over 50 stories about funded artists, groups and organizations across the country.
