Indo-Canada Arts Council was established in 2014 as a federally registered not for profit organization under Canada Corporations. ICAC is a non-government, non-partisan and non-funded organization. Starting 2017 ICAC recognizes the partial funding support from Celebrate Ontario funding program by Government of Ontario and Building Communities through Arts Culture funding program under Canada Heritage funding and grants program of government of Canada for its Diwali RazzMatazz and Canada Diwali festivals. ICAC is governed by a volunteer board of directors and guided by an advisory board comprising of members of the community who have varied interests and experience with their knowledge, skills and influence within their professional and social work.

ICAC has had the pleasure to work with various members and organizations of the community who believe in similar vision and values to promote and support arts and culture. Without their initial support, commitment and encouragement ICAC would have not been able to cast an impact in the community in such a short time.

ICAC thanks all the affiliates and partners who have made our endeavors turn into a reality and encourage active participation and contributions.
