Nova Ontario Arts Council’s New Online Grant Application System

Beginning mid-December 2016, applicants will be able to apply online to 2017 granting program deadlines. The new application process will be easier for applicants – eliminating the paper-driven steps that included photocopying and postage. This process will be more straightforward, efficient and cost-effective for both applicants and OAC.

In preparation for Nova, OAC has also developed a new Funding Framework organizing all of our programs under four funding streams. OAC’s six priority groups remain a key focus in all programs and streams.

As part of our move to online applications, many 2017 program deadlines will shift to new dates. Some programs will now have additional deadlines. More details on 2017 programs will be available over the coming weeks. All remaining 2016 deadlines will stay the same.
