Book Display Program
CANCELLATION OF THE UNDERSTANDING CANADA - CANADIAN STUDIES PROGRAM
Please note that further to the announcements in the 2012 budget, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) has decided to abolish the Understanding Canada-Canadian Studies Program. Therefore, there will be no further grants issued under this program.
Recipients who received a grant recently will have until January 31, 2013 to send to ICCS a final report in order to claim the second instalment of the award.
Book Display Program (BDP)
The Book Display Program (BDP) provides conference applicants who have been selected with publications on Canada to be displayed at their event. The publications have to be related to the theme of the conference. The publications must be about Canada, published in Canada and should not be out of circuation. Consultations between the organizers and the local Canadian mission will determine where the collection of books will be housed following the conference.
Terms & Conditions
The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, through the services of the International Council for Canadian, will contribute up to $1,000CDN (including transportation fees) for library materials considered to be Canadiana and which are related to the theme of the Conference (i.e. books, journals, CD-ROMs, microforms)
Canadian Studies Conference organizers may submit a request for support to the Canadian Mission well in advance of scheduled events (at least six weeks), along with the list of proposed Canadiana purchases. The request should include a list of proposed purchases that should be in order of priority and not in alphabetical order.
Upon determination that the proposed items meet the objectives of the program, the Canadian Mission will recommend appropriate action to the program administrators, the International Council for Canadian Studies (ICCS):
