Grantee Criteria

The following are general guidelines to be applied when considering a new application for addition to the current list of Grantees and/or for a special one-time grant.

Special Circumstances (short term) Grant Programme   

These would be short term grants for significant Canadian writers, not necessarily living in Canada, who need help through a difficult time. Or, in some instances a temporary annual grant which is a bridging grant until the person is eligible for OAS and the GIS.

Continuing (long term) Grant Programme

These long term grants are intended for distinguished Canadian authors living in Canada in financial distress.
