Application Requirements

If you are a Canadian citizen  or permanent resident, living in Canada, working as a full-time professional in magic with at least three years of experience, you are eligible for funding assistance.

If you are having problems with it, print the form and fill it out.

When you have completed the form, SAVE THE FILE and note where it is saved on your computer. You will be asked to upload the Worksheet during the application process. (Or, if you printed and filled it out by hand, scan it or take a photo of it, and have it ready to upload.) 

If you have problems using the Worksheet, you should still group your expenses into categories and calculate each category’s subtotal. You can use the Expense Summary box below to fill in this information manually.
