Simon Brault has been appointed the new director and CEO of the Canada Council for the Arts as announced in a release yesterday.

Brault, who was appointed by the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, will begin his five-year term starting June 26, 2014.

“This is excellent news,” said Joseph L. Rotman, chair of the Canada Council. “Simon Brault is an exceptional leader with the capacity to give the Canada Council new profile, building on the work and legacy of current Director and CEO Robert Sirman.”

As director and CEO, Brault will be responsible for the Council’s day-to-day operations and budget of over $191 million.

“Simon has been a tireless champion of public engagement in the arts. We believe this is vital to the sustainability of the Canadian arts sector,” said Rotman. “The Canada Council will benefit from the vision of such a forward-looking and credible individual. Simon’s intellect and creativity will help set a strong course for the Canada Council’s future.”
