Building Communities through Arts and Heritage
The Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program was created to help you celebrate your community, its past and its present. The Program will increase opportunities, through festivals and other events and projects, for local artists and artisans to be involved in their community and for local groups to commemorate their local history and heritage.
The deadlines for Local Festivals applications are January 30, April 30 and September 30.
The deadline date for all Community Anniversary projects is January 30.
NEW: Commemoration of the Canadian Participation in World War II

If you would like to submit a Community Anniversary application for such a project on September 30, 2013 please contact your Regional Program Officer.
There is no fixed deadline for Legacy Fund submissions; however, your project must be submitted at the latest by the date of your anniversary.
