Movable Cultural Property Grants help designated organizations acquire cultural property of outstanding significance and national importance to Canada, as outlined in the Cultural Property Export and Import Act. Designated organizations are located in Canada and demonstrate the ability to ensure the long-term preservation of cultural property.
Movable Cultural Property Grants are awarded to designated organizations. These organizations meet the necessary standards to preserve and make the cultural property (purchased with the assistance of a grant) publicly accessible.
Organizations that are not designated may apply for designation alongside their application for a grant.
Grants can be used to purchase cultural property:
- for which an export permit has been denied; or
- that is important to Canada’s national heritage and available for purchase outside the country.
Deadline DateThere are no deadlines for the submission of grant or designation applications.
