Canada Arts Presentation Fund – Programming | Presenter Support Organizations:


The CAPF can support up to 25% of eligible expenses, or a maximum of $100,000 in the case of grants and $200,000 in the case of contributions.


The Canada Arts Presentation Fund (CAPF) – Programming: Presenter Support Organizations provides financial assistance to organizations that offer activities and services to arts presenters in order to strengthen the arts presentation sector.

Eligible Applicants

  • a not-for-profit organization incorporated under Part II of the Canada Corporations Act or the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act (or under corresponding provincial or territorial legislation);
  • a provincial, territorial or municipal institution (including agencies and public educational institutions that organize presentation activities for the public); or
  • an Aboriginal peoples institution or organization (Aboriginal peoples include Inuit, Métis, Status and Non-Status people).

Eligible Expenses

Only project-related expenses are eligible, which can be of cash and in-kind value; these may include:

  • costs related to the coordination of contact events, showcases and presenter conferences, including hall and venue rentals, registration and material costs, artists’ fees, and per diems, accommodation and travel related to artists;
  • promotion/marketing including cost associated with social media;
  • training and professional development activities, e.g. workshop facilitation, mentorship expenses, consultant fees and research costs as well as travel, accommodation and per diems related to business activities; and administration costs.

In-kind contributions are considered real contributions to the cost of the proposed project but are not reimbursable. Donated goods and services may be considered in-kind contributions if they:

  • are essential to your project’s success;
  • are eligible and would otherwise have to be purchased or paid for by you;
  • can be measured at fair market value (i.e.: in relation to similar goods and services); and
  • are balanced by an equal revenue in your budget (i.e.: total in-kind expenses equal total in-kind revenues).

Deadline Date

  April 1st for projects which will occur after April 1st of the following year.
