The Grant Guru is your one-stop shop for fast, high-quality and affordable Canadian arts grant writing services. For over 10 years, I have been helping Canadian artists and presenters get grant funding for their music recording, touring, and presentation projects. While my experience is mostly in the music sector, I also offer grant writing services for visual artists and filmmakers.


I specialize in writing grants for the following funding agencies:


  • Heritage Canada

  • Canada Council for the Arts

  • The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings (FACTOR)

  • The Ontario Music Fund

  • Ontario Arts Council

  • Toronto Arts Council

  • The SOCAN Foundation


I am available to help you with your grant for any federal, provincial and municipal program in Canada for which you want to apply. I am also open to working with international clients in the United States and abroad. My a la carte services also include reports and working in an editing capacity if you want to go the DIY route but need an experienced set of eyes on your grant.

Past & present clients include:


Small World Music, Nufunk Concerts, The Nujazz Festival, Do Right Music, Jones & Jones Productions, Ammoye, It’s OK*, Good Vibes Only Festival, Lady Son, Jason Wilson, Ogguere, Organiko, The Human Rights, House of David Gang, Lenka Lichtenberg, Salseros With Attitude, King Sunshine, Exco Levi, Son Roberts, DoGood Fundraising, Imran Babur, Tirgan Foundation, Meesha Shafi, Rumi Canada
