Support Us

The Visual Arts Centre is a not-for-profit arts organization, comprised of the largest bilingual independent art school in Canada, a well-recognized contemporary art gallery, and an outreach education program. As a registered charity with only 5% of its operating budget coming from governments, the Centre relies on funding from private sources such as tuition, donations, and sponsorships. Courses, gallery programming, and outreach activities are all subsidized by donations. Support from our donor community is absolutely essential for us to continue to achieve our mission to offer exceptional art education in a stimulating and welcoming community. We are very grateful to each of our donors. Every dollar counts.

Charitable registration no. 106896244RR0001
