In May, the Imperial Tobacco Canada Foundation (ITCF) announced the winners of their inaugural New Creation in the Arts Awards. La La La Human Steps, O Vertigo Danse Inc., and artists representing the CanAsian Dance Festival, along with seven other visual and performing arts groups, received $50,000 each to be directed toward new creations. Established in 2005, the ITCF is a private charitable foundation funded solely by Montreal-based Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited. These awards, along with a larger Arts Achievement Award, replace the Arts Council and Arts Fund Awards previously offered by the foundation, which had allowed organizations to apply for various types of support.
