In light of recent Federal and Provincial Government’s public health directives concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, please be advised that the VANL-CARFAC offices are closed effective immediately. Our staff will be working from home but we are still available via email and will be monitoring our telephone messages regularly. We do ask for your patience if there are some slight delays in response time as we adjust to this situation.

We know there will be additional questions regarding the impact this will have on the Excellence in Visual Arts Award and other programs and services, as well as the status of our office closure, and we will share more information here as soon as it’s available. If you do not already, we encourage you to follow us on our social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

If you have questions, please contact us at or leave a message at 738-7303 (or toll free at .1-877-738-7303)
