Canadian Conference for the Arts
The Canadian Conference of the Arts is a not for profit, non partisan member based organization that represents the interests of over 400,000 artists, cultural professionals from all disciplines of the nation’s vast arts, culture and heritage community. As the national convener, the CCA provides support for collaborative leadership for the Canadian cultural sector.
Originally known as the Trillium Foundation, the organization started with humble beginnings in 1982. The economic conditions of the early 80s had adversely affected the voluntary social service sector. Government funding and private sector donations had decreased. It was a time when many charities, large and small, were concerned about their ability to secure funds to enable them to carry on their existing programs and to meet essential community needs.
Community Foundation of Ottawa

Since 1987, the Community Foundation of Ottawa has been enabling generous citizens to enhance the quality of life in their community and to achieve their own charitable objectives through permanent, well-managed endowments.
