The Canada Council for the Arts is on the brink of implementing its New Funding Model, and wants to make sure Quebec’s English-speaking artists have the information they need to make the leap.

ELAN’s Board of Directors met with Simon Brault, CEO of Canada Council, on March 24. Mr. Brault, plus Council staff Sarah Dingle and Claude Schryer, were generous with their time, answering questions from ELAN members and clarifying elements of the new model.

Answers to ELAN member questions submitted in advance are available in this summary.  Supplementary notes from the meeting and answers to questions from board members are now available here.
