Canada Council for the Arts announced today the launch (October 23) of a new grant program to support organizational development, Leadership for Change. In fall, 2012, the Canada Council suspended and carried out an extensive review of its Flying Squad program. Leadership for Change will now replace the Flying Squad.
The Leadership for Change program provides funding to organizations for consultations with a specialist or expert in order to develop new management practices, explore alternative organizational structures or seize valuable opportunities that clearly address the objectives of the program. It supports projects that strengthen an organization, a sector or a community’s ability to adapt to their changing environment. The program encourages collaborative approaches.
Organizations are expected to share the knowledge gained through the project with their community or within their own organization.
The program has two components:
- Component 1: Grants to collective or sectoral initiatives – maximum of $20,000
- Component 2: Grants to organizations – maximum of $10,000
Deadline: December 15, 2013
