Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations, government agencies, educational institutions, and Aboriginal institutions and organizations for the presentation of performing arts series and arts festivals. Funding is intended to support programming that gives Canadians opportunities to value and engage with professional artistic experiences.
The Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters sub-component supports existing professional arts festivals and performing arts series presenters to offer activities that connect artists with Canadians in their communities.

The expected results of the Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters sub-component include the following:
- Arts presenter organizations offer a variety of professional artistic experiences to Canadians; and
- Canadians in all regions of the country engage and participate in a variety of professional artistic experiences offered by arts presenters.
-Presentation of a minimum of three distinct professional shows, as part of a performing arts series, in one or several artistic disciplines and from more than one province or territory;
-Presentation within a festival format of at least three distinct professional performances or events from one or several artistic disciplines and from more than one province or territory;

-Professional development/networking activities for arts presenters such as attending workshops and conferences;
