Program Adjustments for 2021-2022
Ontario Creates understands that COVID-19 has created many challenges across the creative industries. Company activities that facilitate international business and audience development are eligible provided they align with the objectives of the Export Fund program. Travel and participation in industry events organized by third parties is not required. Eligible activities/costs may include but are not limited to:
Ontario Creates values and supports diversity and gender parity at all levels and business roles within creative industries. They acknowledge that many communities continue to face systemic barriers, preventing them from participating meaningfully in these industries. Ontario Creates applies a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion to the evaluation criteria for this program, and directs jury members to do the same. Applicants proposing projects/activities that support, reflect, and strengthen diversity and gender parity in Ontario are expected to tangibly demonstrate a genuine and sustained commitment to these equity-seeking communities. Ontario Creates encourages applications from companies that are led by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Colour) or Francophone individuals and applicants that otherwise meet the provincial definition of diversity.
