Opening doors to Canadian arts data

We offer the public detailed statistical data regarding our grant recipients in formatted Excel documents and in a machine readable format (.csv). Data can be sorted by programs, regions (e.g. community and census metropolitan area) and can also be added to other databases on arts and culture activities and organizations in Canada. 

Data Tables
The front cover design of the 2022–23 Annual Report includes the logo of the Canada Council for the Arts in the top left-hand corner and features a mosaic of images by Canadian artist Gontran Blais that includes shapes and colours in the centre of the page with partial graphic lines and a shaded rectangular grey box in the background.

Annual Report

Each year, the Canada Council for the Arts makes its Annual Report available to the public. This document reviews the Council’s commitments from its five-year strategic plan and highlights the year’s major projects while showcasing the work of funded artists and organizations. The Annual Report demonstrates the importance, necessity and impact of public arts funding.
