Town of Oakville Cultural Grants

Administered through the Oakville Arts Council


Brief History:


Each year since 1989, the Town of Oakville has provided operating and project grants to qualified not-for-profit cultural organizations. The Oakville Arts Council, on behalf of the Town of Oakville administers this process with the applications reviewed by the Cultural Grants Review Committee commissioned by and responsible to the Board of Directors of the Oakville Arts Council. Over the past 10 years, 35 different cultural organizations in Oakville have benefited from this support and in a number of instances these grants formed a substantial part of the recipient’s funding. In 2010, the OAC renewed our Memorandum of Understanding with the Town of Oakville (covering 2010 through 2012) for the following purposes:

  1. To ensure that Oakville shall be a community where art is embraced and Oakville artists and art organizations are supported and recognized as vital and central to the creative life of the Town.
  2. To service the Oakville community through enabling the activity of artists, arts groups and businesses.
  3. To provide, through the OAC, a non-partisan, arms-length service that advocates, communicates, enables, and sustains the arts for the community of Oakville.
  4. To administer grants to the artists and arts groups of Oakville on behalf of the CTO, ensuring accountability and transparency.

2014 Allocations:


The 2014 cultural grant applications were reviewed by a peer advisory committee made up of representatives from the arts and business community.
