Capital Funding Programs

Capital fundraising whether from public or private sources is extremely competitive across the province and requires perseverance, planning and patience. A detailed analysis of current or upcoming capital funding opportunities for the culture sector is available in A Study of Facility Needs of Small and Mid-Sized Professional Theatres in the City of Toronto by Sandra Tulloch. This report is available from www.pact.ca and was commissioned by Theatre Ontario, Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT) and Toronto Theatre Alliance (TTA) with financial support from the Canada Council for the Arts through the Flying Squad program of the Theatre Section. Here is a summary of the capital funding programs.
