Applications Open for Canadian Arts Training Fund!

Deadline: 30 June 2017

Applications are being accepted for the Canada Arts Training Fund (CATF), created to support arts training in Canada.

The objective of the program is to contribute to the development of Canadian creators and future cultural leaders of the Canadian arts sector by supporting the training of artists with high potential through organizations that offer training of the highest calibre.

The CATF program provides stabilizing annual or multi-year financial support for the ongoing operations of Canadian organizations that specialize in training artists for professional national or international artistic careers at the highest levels. Funded organizations must be independent, not-for-profit, incorporated Canadian organizations with pan-Canadian artistic impact and training activities that are national in scope. Through their achievements, these organizations support the continuation of cultural leadership and the cultural development of Canada.

Expected Outcomes

The program’s success is measured against the following expected results:

  • Nationally significant Canadian institutions offer arts training of the highest calibre
  • Arts training institutions of the highest calibre are financially and administratively stable
  • Graduates are recognized for excellence in Canada and internationally

Eligibility Criteria

In order to be eligible for funding through the CATF, applicant organizations must:

  • be incorporated in Canada as a not-for-profit organization;
  • demonstrate that the training for which funding is requested is not funded as a provincial post-secondary education activity and that it does not result in the granting in that province of a post-secondary qualification such as a diploma, certificate or degree;
  • Receive support for at least 30% of costs related to training work from sources other than this program (for example: tuition, other levels of government, fundraising, etc.). Total support from all levels of government cannot exceed 90% of the activity costs;
  • be directed by recognized professionals with a background in the discipline in which training is provided and that training should be staffed with professionals from that artistic discipline;
  • have sufficient administrative capacity to support organizational objectives;
  • have delivered the professional training program and have had year-round administrative operations in support of the program for a minimum of three years;
  • have a track record of significant artistic achievement at the national level, with graduates having a national impact and achieving wide recognition in their discipline;
  • be accessible to Canadians through a national competitive admission process available in both of Canada’s official languages, including a bilingual website and information material, and a bilingual audition process (training programs in an Aboriginal or ethno cultural art form and training programs involving students aged 10 to 19 years where the accompanying academic education is offered in only one language may be considered as exceptions); and
  • have a national student body. It is expected that a national organization would draw at least 20% of its student body from regions outside the training area.
