Canada Council for the ArtsThe Canada Council was created by an Act of Parliament in 1957 to foster and promote the study, enjoyment and production of works in the arts, and operate at “arm’s length” or independently of government. Since then, the Canada Council has evolved into a dynamic organization that is Canada’s leading supporter of the arts. We are proud to have contributed to the lively cultural life and abundance of exceptional art that we now enjoy in Canada.
