The Cultural Funding Support Section (CFSS) assists independent, local, not-for-profit organizations, as well as professional artists and heritage professionals in the presentation of arts and heritage events and activities that reflect a broad representation of communities within Ottawa.
The City of Ottawa supports cultural activity that is inclusive of Ottawa’s diverse community, including people from a diversity of ancestries, abilities, ages, countries of origin, cultures, genders, incomes, languages, races and sexual orientations.
The City of Ottawa is built on unceded Algonquin Anishinabe territory. The Cultural Funding Support Section honours the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation as host nation.
Submissions from applicants reflecting Ottawa’s diversity, as well as First Nations, Inuit and Métis are welcome and encouraged.
The City of Ottawa recognizes both official languages as having the same rights, status and privileges, and therefore accepts applications in both English and French.
