Answers to your questions

Here are the answers to the questions submitted by members of the public that we didn’t have time to answer.

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.
