In addition to allocating $157 million in financial support to professional artists and arts organizations, the Canada Council spent last year laying the groundwork for organizational and program change. Details on these activities are outlined in its
2011-12 Annual Report released today.
Holding strong to the five directions and three themes outlined in its Strategic Plan 2011-16 Strengthening Connections, the Canada Council reaffirmed its commitment to be responsive to societal change and to effectively manage its resources.
“At a time when Canada is being urged to accelerate its innovation agenda, investing in creativity should be a national priority,” stated Council Chair Joseph L. Rotman. “The Council is acutely aware of the impact of its funds on artists as well as the benefits to Canadians and will continue to demonstrate the highest possible standard in its investment of public funds.”
“By investing $157 million in some 1,900 communities across the country, the Council connects Canadians to art and artists who stimulate and educate, challenge and entertain,” said Director and CEO Robert Sirman. “As artists move into new realms of creativity, so must the Council. With stable funding for the next three years, Council has embarked on a significant change agenda, reviewing its programs and processes to ensure that it remains relevant.”
