Annual Public Meeting: 23 January 2018, 4 pm to 5:15 pm (EST)

Learn about Canada Council’s work in the last year, and what lies ahead.

What's an Annual Public Meeting (APM) and why hold one?

An Annual Public Meeting is a legal requirement for the Canada Council, as a Crown Corporation. The APM is a great opportunity for us to give an update on our activities, report our accomplishments to Canadians, and field any questions or comments they may have. We want you to see and hear first-hand what our strategic priorities are, where we are headed, and why.


Your questions, our answers

We invite you to send questions to apm@canadacouncil.ca. We will publish responses on our site shortly after the APM.

Transparency, accountability and accessibility are the values that guide our work. Our APM is open to the public and will also be live-streamed on the web. We will be live tweeting the event, too, using the hashtag #Council18. We want Canadians to learn more about our work!
