The Ontario Arts Council is an arm’s-length agency of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. OAC’s grants and services to professional, Ontario-based artists and arts organizations support arts education, Aboriginal arts, community arts, crafts, dance, Franco-Ontarian arts, literature, media arts, multidisciplinary arts, music, theatre, touring, and visual arts.

The Ontario Arts Council is directed by 12 volunteer board (council) members who come from communities throughout the province.  They are appointed by the Government of Ontario for a three-year term. OAC’s board is responsible for setting OAC’s policies and oversees the organization’s operation.

For more than 50 years, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) has played a vital role in promoting and assisting the development of the arts for the enjoyment and benefit of Ontarians.
