For Other Submissons


CARFAC ONline is a weekly newsletter provided to active members of CARFAC Ontario. The content is grouped into the following categories: announcements, funding opportunities, artist residency programs, calls for submission, and arts-related employment opportunities. While our members are are artists who live and work in Ontario, we welcome relevant international submissions. 


CARFAC ONline provides valuable information as a service to active CARFAC Ontario members in good standing. The information is intended for our members to be used for personal and professional practice only, and not to be redistributed.

CARFAC Ontario makes every effort to provide information that is up-to-date and accurate. All information and material is shared for informative purposes only. Please directly contact the funder, exhibition venue, or hiring organization in question for complete information regarding their opportunity or listing. CARFAC Ontario and its employees are not responsible for any omissions or changes made in post by organizations once a CARFAC ONline newsletter is sent out. Additionally, CARFAC Ontario and its employees are not responsible for any losses, costs, or claims that may arise as a result of relying on information shared through our newsletter.

Individual and institutional members can request for the inclusion of their announcements, opportunities, or listings; provided that they adhere to our guidelines below.
Please Note:
CARFAC Ontario may edit postings for size when appropriate.

Please contact to share an opportunity or listing through CARFAC Online.


At staff discretion, announcements are of arts-related government and non-government news, both provincial and Canada-wide, also including workshops and professional development opportunities.

The following are not included:

1. Institutional and individual exhibitions, art tours, events, and fundraisers
2. Art courses and workshops for artistic skills development.

Please Note: Institutional and individual members can submit their exhibitions to be shared on our website here


We welcome the opportunity to share funding opportunities relevant to visual and media artists (i.e. grants, bursaries, awards) with our members. Funding opportunities that require applicants to pay submission fees will not be included.

CARFAC Ontario staff may evaluate funding opportunities with consideration for the administrative labour required to complete submission/proposal processes, and exclude, at its discretion, opportunities where labour required to complete an application is disproportionate to the level of funding available.

We will prioritize funding opportunities that are designed to be accessible to all artists, and that acknowledge systemic barriers experienced by members of equity-seeking groups.  


Must be paid jobs or offer adequate honorarium. Unpaid internships and volunteer positions will not be included.


Preference will be given to residencies offering honorarium and/or financial assistance to artists. Residencies that charge application fees may be considered for inclusion at staff’s discretion.


Exhibitions that charge application or submission fees will not be included.

  • Non-Commercial Exhibitions: The artist(s) must be paid exhibition royalties (i.e. artists' fees) according to the current CARFAC-RAAV Minimum Recommended Fee Schedule

  • Commercial Exhibitions: Must present an opportunity for the artist to receive compensation for the sale of their work(s). Of the revenue generated by the sale of the artists' work(s), 60% is to be paid to the artist and 40% is to be paid to the dealer/organization.
  • Art Fairs and Art Expositions: May be included at staff’s discretion depending on the scope and location of the event, while also considering any entry fees.

For more information on best practices for exhibitions, please refer to our advisory note: "Guidelines for Professional Standards in the Organization of Juried Exhibitions"
