Reviewing and Reversing Grant Decisions

Funding decisions of Arts Nova Scotia are final. Decisions cannot be appealed unless evidence suggests that significant procedural flaw occurred during the assessment process. Arts Nova Scotia retains the right to cancel any grant previously awarded.

Examples of serious concerns include failure to meet the terms and conditions of the grant, failure to comply with legal obligations, and misrepresentation and risk of insolvency.
