2021-26 Strategic Plan:
Art, now more than ever

Ongoing priorities


The Canada Council for the Arts aspires to support a vital and diverse arts ecology that enriches the lives of all Canadians—and equity is a critical element in achieving this.

Official languages

The Canada Council for the Arts promotes Canada's two official languages, English and French. It also employs positive measures to support the artistic vitality of Official Language Minority Communities (OLMCs): groups of people whose maternal or chosen official language is not the majority language in their province or territory – in other words, Anglophones in Quebec and Francophones outside of Quebec.
