Services for artists and arts organizations

The Ministry provides many key programs and services through its cultural agencies. Our agencies are the stewards of unique historic and natural assets, and centres of excellence and innovation in regions cross Ontario. They offer a wide range of educational, recreational, and cultural entertainment for residents and visitors.

The Ontario Arts Council

The Ontario Arts Council was developed to foster the creation and production of art for the benefit of all Ontarians.

This agency provides grants and services that support all artistic disciplines and communities across the province. Go to its Granting Programs and Awards page.

It supports the province's network of arts service organizations. These groups provide important advocacy, professional development and other services to a range of arts stakeholders.

Ontario Trillium Foundation

The Ontario Trillium Foundation makes strategic investments to build healthy, sustainable and caring communities. It supports the important role that arts, culture, recreation, sports, the environment and social services play in the creation of vibrant communities.
