Government

Canadian Heritage

Service Canada
Service Canada offers single-window access to a wide range of Government of Canada programs and services for citizens through more than 600 points of service located across the country, call centres, and the Internet.

The Canada Council was created by an Act of Parliament in 1957 to foster and promote the study, enjoyment and production of works in the arts, and operate at "arm's length" or independently of government. 

Alberta Culture
The Spirit of Alberta ensures Albertans have the opportunity to share, express and experience culture in a province that respects the past, celebrates the present and welcomes the future.
 
Alberta Foundation for the Arts 
As the primary arts resource and grant funding body in Alberta, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts helps to unleash the potential of every artist through funding, arts promotion and capacity-building services. With the same passion as Alberta’s artists, they provide behind-the-scenes support to artists and arts organizations, giving them the power to inspire minds, encourage expression, foster creativity and contribute to Alberta’s economy. 

Alberta Lottery Fund
Each year thousands of non-profit/volunteer organizations in Alberta require funding for a variety of projects and initiatives. Some of this funding is available to these organizations through various lottery-funded grant programs.

The City of Calgary
The City of Calgary is committed to ensuring arts and culture remains an essential element in creating a vibrant, creative and culturally stimulating city, and encourages residents to actively participate in and access the arts around the city.

Calgary Arts Development Authority
