London Arts Council (LAC) is implementing strategies to support London’s arts community. We have been consulting with other funders at the provincial and federal levels, and have considered the evolving requirements of local health and safety authorities.  


The February 21, 2020 submission deadline was prior to the Covid-19 shutdown. At that time, no one knew the impact this would have on the ideas, events and plans contained in the CAIP Annual Stream submissions that are impossible to deliver now and for the foreseeable future. In consideration of the current situation the London Arts Council has suspended peer jury evaluation of all 2020 Annual Stream submissions and deferred the process.

The LAC continues to monitor directives from municipal health authorities, once physical distancing and health and safety requirements for audiences and venues are made clear we will re-open the online submission portal for arts organizations to update their submission.


Please note: All juried Arts Organizations supported in 2019 through the Annual Stream who currently have both a Venue (own or operate) and paid Artistic Staff will move to an urgent need process.

London Arts Council Staff will be in contact in the next two weeks if your organization falls under this category.


To contact the London Arts Council about your CAIP submission, please email: and a team member will respond to your inquiry.
