Webinar on New Canada Council Grant Applications: April 24

Canada Council Webinar for Magazines

Since last December, the Canada Council has released more information about their new programs and launched a new portal for grant applications. The Canada Council’s new funding model came into effect on April 1. They are now planning a webinar to guide Canada Council-funded magazine publishers through their next grant application.

From the Canada Council:

“At this session, we will discuss the transition, the objectives of the two programs, the application and evaluation processes, and we will answer your questions. It will also be an opportunity to virtually meet the new team and the officers who will be responsible for the magazine programs.

“Please note that this webinar is exclusively focused on magazines currently funded by the Council.  However, new magazines are welcomed to speak with us at MagNet or to contact us by phone or email.”

You are invited to attend the online meeting to be held on Monday April 24 at 2 pm (EST). If you cannot attend, you may have someone else from your organization take your place.

Please confirm your presence or the name of the person who will represent your organization with Brigitte Fontille at

The 90-minute meeting will take place via Webex; a web and teleconference tool which will allow Canada Council to present documents in real time. An automatically generated email will be sent to you with details on how to log-in and access the web conference; please save these instructions for the day of the meeting.

An important note from the Canada Council: “In order to make effective use of our time together, we will be accepting questions before and during the meeting. If you would like to submit a question prior to the meeting, please submit it by email no later than April 18. All questions should be sent directly Brigitte Fontille at
