The Representation and Promotion component of Arts Across Canada funds travel linked to promotion and the development of new markets for Canadian artists and artistic works. Grants are available to Canadian registered or incorporated arts organizations that represent Canadian artists and regularly seek out new opportunities in the Canadian arts market.

Individuals who are Deaf or who have disabilities, including those living with mental illness, and require accommodation at any stage of the application process may be eligible for additional assistance.

To calculate the amount you can request for travel costs, see the fixed travel rates.
