In response to the Government of Canada’s policy on the publication of grants and contributions over $25,000, the Canada Council for the Arts’ searchable online database provides information on all grants and prizes awarded.
The database is updated 4 times per year to include information on all grants and prizes awarded by the Canada Council. Between 1998 and 2016, the database was updated in November.
It is important to note that the proactive grant disclosure data cannot be reconciled with either the quarterly financial statements or the annual grant data due to changes during the period such as grant cancellations.
As part as the annual reporting cycle, the Council will release a validated list of grants and prizes, after the Annual Report has been published. The Canada Council retains successful application files for a period of 20 years.
