What’s an Annual Public Meeting and why hold one?

As a Crown corporation, the APM is a legal requirement for the Canada Council for the Arts. More than that, we see it as a great opportunity to share annual updates with the arts community and the wider Canadian public. We want you to hear firsthand about the progress we’ve made towards our strategic commitments, our support for the arts right now, and the work towards our next strategic plan.
