Request For Proposals

As required in Council’s Procurement Policy, the purchase of goods and/or services valued at greater than $25,000 must go through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to solicit quotations from several suppliers in response to written terms of reference. The Canada Council uses MERX to post all RFP’s. Click on the link provided below to view and order the complete RFP documents from MERX. When an amendment is issued, MERX will automatically notify suppliers of the change to the RFP.

Please note that if you choose to download the RFP document directly from our website, it is your responsibility to verify regularly for any amendments or additional information that may be updated or added to the RFP.

Request for video proposals to honour great Canadian artists

We are looking to pair Canadian directors with the 2019 GGAVMA winners to create artistic video portraits (3 minutes max., including credits/bumpers). We also encourage production centres and directors to enter an agreement that would help cover the costs of services and equipment they might need.

The videos will raise the profile of the winners and the visual arts, media arts and fine craft in Canada.

Each video will be an artistic and original portrait of the GGAVMA winner of which the commissioned director has complete creative control. Ideally, it will celebrate the winner's achievement and the impact his or her life's work has made on the lives of Canadians.
