The Ontario Arts Council supports Ontario Contact and its delegates through providing travel assistance to those delegates travelling 300+ kilometres to attend. The Ontario Arts Council travel subsidy is for delegates only and is availablefor one delegate per presenting organization. It is dependent on the number of requests received, and is pro-rated based on distance travelled.
Applicants must register to Ontario Contact in advance and check off the travel allowance request. Priority will be given to those representing volunteer presenting organizations and generally only one person per organization will be supported.
This year, the subsidy will be based on a rate of $.40km if driving your own vehicle and/or flight/train/car rental expenses with receipts of up to $1,000. Presenters travelling less than 300 km are eligible pending available funds. Travel Assistance subsidies may not cover the full cost of travel depending on number and amount of requests.
Successful applicants must attend Ontario Contact and submit a scanned copy of their travel receipts to Noora Sagarwala. Cheques will be disbursed following the conference.
