The Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists, Ontario Chapter (CADA-ON), has been awarded a $27,800 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation Province-Wide Program. The award supports a research project that aims to discover how micro-finance might support Ontario artists. The project is a collaboration with the Canadian Artists' Representation/le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC Ontario), Dance Ontario, Ontario Crafts Council, and the Canadian Music Centre - Ontario Region. In a press release, CADA-ON Executive Director Elizabeth Chitty expressed the intent of the project: "This research project will investigate and explore how micro-finance tools work, how they could be used by individual artists in Ontario and what steps will be required to enable their use by artists ... Artists' improved status will enable their greater contribution to Ontarians' quality of life, social and economic health." http://www.cada-on.ca
