Grant funding is available to artists from every Canadian province and territory, and to international artists as well; funding can assist with the production of new works, professional development activities, or travel. The challenge is locating these grant opportunities and understanding to which category you should apply.

This summary of funding sources is intended to point you in the right direction.
