categories of eligible expenses could be funded up to 75 percent. Programming costs relating to artists' fees could be
no more than 50 percent of the total funding made available for that tourism event.

tourism events in all parts of the country.

-SUbject to Treasury Board Approval

(f) How were the successful applications chosen?


• MTEP officials reviewed each application to ensure that it was complete and that all required documentation was
enclosed, as reqUired in the application form and in the application guide.
• Officials determined if an event met all the eligibility requirements. For example, officials verified that the

established minimum thresholds for attendance and percentage of tourists had been met.

• Officials reviewed whether requested funding was within program funding limits, based on financial information
submitted. For example, a funding request could be no more than 20 percent of the cash operating budget of the
event's preceding year, and it had to demonstrate a 50 percent threshold for artists' fees.

• All applications were assessed based upon the information provided by the applicant.
• Those events that received funding put forth acceptable proposals to the Government of Canada that met the
clearly defined eligibility criteria.
