The British Columbia Arts Council supports arts and cultural activity in communities across British Columbia. From professional dance companies, to art galleries, local museums and music festivals – the Council works to enrich the lives of British Columbians in virtually every community in the province. The Council supports a range of activities that includes funding for professional artists and arts organizations, community initiatives, training and scholarships.

Mandate BC Arts Council (BCAC) was established by the Province in 1995, under the Arts Council Act, to:

- Provide support for arts and culture in British Columbia
- Provide persons and organizations with the opportunity to participate in the arts and culture in British Columbia
- Provide an open, accountable and neutrally administered process for managing funds for British Columbia arts and culture.

In 2014, the Council released its Strategic Plan for 2014-2018. The Strategic Plan guides the Council’s development of policy and program priorities as it strives to support the creative and innovative capacity of the arts and cultural community and represent the interests of the creative sector.
