CCL Online Canada 2023 will run from February 2023 to May 2023 through 9 sessions.

The program is open to artists, curators, creative and cultural professionals and policy-makers that work and live across Canada. This CCL will be delivered in English.

Cost: The program fee is $750 CAD. There is a limited number of full and partial scholarships available for those who articulate financial need.
