About Isaac’s Way

Isaac’s Way opened in November 2005 on Carleton Street under the leadership of Tina and Jason LeJeune. They worked ambitiously to create a community minded restaurant. The original restaurant was destroyed in a tragic fire October 2012, but we love our new location at 649 Queen Street, in the old historic York County Court House c1855.

Conference 2021 – Call for presentations | CNAL

Call for Presentations!

The world has endured a collective traumatic experience throughout the past eighteen months.  According to a study conducted by the United Way Centraide, 76% of Canadians surveyed say the pandemic has had a negative effect on their mental health. The Government of Canada reports, “People are being challenged like never before due to isolation, physical health concerns, substance use concerns, financial and employment uncertainty, and the emotional dialogue around racial equality.”


As arts and learning practitioners, we regularly see the impact that the arts have in students and participants’ lives. The World Health Organization reports that “Results from over 3000 studies identified a major role for the arts in the prevention of ill health, promotion of health, and management and treatment of illness across the lifespan.”  In Canada, Hill Strategies concludes, “There is solid evidence of a connection between cultural participation and mental health.”

As we eagerly, yet tentatively, look towards pandemic recovery, we recognize the vital role that the arts must play in the health and wellbeing of Canada’s citizens, communities and society as a whole. We have also learned a great deal about the importance of technology and the intrinsic value it has to facilitate connectivity and broaden the range of arts and learning opportunities available to the public.

In October 2021, delegates committed to arts and culture, education, recreation, health, therapy, medicine, humanities, social justice and community will gather in groups across Canada and online for Creative Convergence, the biennial conference presented by the Canadian Network for Arts & Learning.  This creative exchange will feature an overarching theme of “recovery” and include streams of health & wellbeing, and community connectivity.


The conference will explore the following themes:

  • the impact of the pandemic on arts and learning practice and programs – in schools, in communities, in professional arts organizations, in other sectors committed to and delivering arts and learning experiences
  • the opportunities, challenges and possible pitfalls for arts and learning in a digital age and what we’ve learned throughout the social distancing measures
  • the opportunities through which arts and learning can contribute to post-pandemic health and wellbeing – of individuals, communities and society
  • the strategies that can be employed to ensure the survival of artistic learning in all contexts and sectors


All presenters must register for the conference and pay the $25 fee for virtual attendance.  Registration will be available on the CNAL/RCAA website.

Workshop with a YA Agent this weekend

JULY 25th



Each month Voyage is bringing you a new YA workshop/class with some of the best agents, editors, and authors in YA!

We’ve designed these workshops to help you level up your craft in short 75-minute sessions. We focus on a specific area of craft and publishing related to YA.

With years of experience both evaluating and editing query letters, literary agent Kaitlyn Johnson will break down the do’s and don’ts when crafting your pitch. Learn format, the vernacular that applies to your story, and the best hooks to nab an agent! You’ll also learn what happens in the query process after you hit submit! Have those questions ready, as we’ll be including a Q&A for your specific concerns.

This class will be taught via Zoom and writers may register to attend live or receive the recorded version.

When: Sunday, July 25th, 1 PM EST


About the Instructor:

After receiving a BA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College, Kaitlyn Johnson refused to leave the concept of nightly homework behind. A literary agent for Belcastro Literary Agency, she is also a freelance editor at her own company, Strictly Textual. Kaitlyn started her literary journey as a copyeditor for academic publisher codeMantra, a YA editor for Accent Press, a Conference Assistant for GrubStreet, Boston, and has been agenting since 2016. She has written various articles for Writer’s Digest and has had a flash fiction story published in the anthology A Box of Stars Beneath the Bed.

About YA: YA is an ever expanding category of literature that constantly pushes boundaries. While the intended audience of YA is teenagers, almost half of YA readers are adults and Voyage is happy to be at the intersection of both groups. We are not interested in publishing a specific genre of YA, but we are interested in quality work by writers from a variety of backgrounds, especially #ownvoices. We are excited about creating a space that supports both emerging and established voices.

Voyage features short-form fiction and nonfiction weekly and we’re typically looking for unpublished work, though we do consider reprints. All submissions should be 6,000 words or less.

Please send any inquiries to contact (at) thevoyagejournal.com.

By submitting to The Voyage Journal, submitters agree to receive correspondence about future work and submission opportunities from The Voyage Journal. You can unsubscribe at any time.

During the inaugural season, the Playhouse welcomed 71 local artists for 11 multi-disciplinary residencies while the stage was not being used for regular programming. This time was used for artistic activities including script development, preparing for concerts, movement exploration, filming music videos, and more.

Based on the success of the pilot program, the Fredericton Playhouse will continue InterMISSION residencies while returning to a fully scheduled season in 2021 and seeks proposals for the 22-23 season.

Residencies are open to theatre artists, musicians, choreographers, composers, dancers, visual artists, designers, etc. Individual artists, artistic companies, collectives, or any combination thereof working collaboratively are eligible to apply.

Super Food Summit Series x Todd Gronsdahl

Série Super Food Summit Series
Projet virtuel et interactif / Virtual and interactive project

French follows

Early in the pandemic, Todd pivoted from his postponed installations and food performances to explore his Saskatchewan Maritime Museum narratives through lo-fi stop animation. As pandemic restrictions continue to alter our opportunities to travel, we have decided to collaborate on a “prairie/maritime food summit” of sorts.

We want you to submit any recipes, lore, ingredients or maritime foodie experiences!

These anecdotes will flesh out an imagined Saskatchewan/New Brunswick Chef Summit from our distant past that Gronsdahl will cobble together from rumour, myth and outright fabrication into a charming stop-animation story.

Follow our IG page and stories in the month of July to follow his progress and to view the official story of the chef’s summit dredged from the annals of time!


Au début de la pandémie, Todd a reporté ses installations et ses performances alimentaires pour explorer les récits du Musée maritime de la Saskatchewan par le biais d’animations stop-motion. Comme les restrictions liées à la pandémie continuent d’altérer nos possibilités de voyager, nous avons décidé de collaborer à une sorte de «sommet alimentaire prairies/maritimes».

Nous voulons que vous nous soumettiez vos recettes, vos traditions, vos ingrédients ou vos expériences culinaires maritimes!

Ces anecdotes viendront étoffer un sommet des chefs de la Saskatchewan et du Nouveau-Brunswick imaginé dans notre lointain passé et que Gronsdahl reconstituera à partir de rumeurs, de mythes et d’affabulations pour en faire une charmante histoire en stop animation.

Suivez notre page Instagram au mois de juillet pour suivre ses progrès et pour voir l’histoire officielle du sommet des chefs tirée des annales du temps!


Student Work Placement Program | CHRC

Subsidizing work integrated learning placements to prepare students for the cultural workforce.

With funding from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), CHRC is launching the Student Work Placement (SWP) Program for the Canadian cultural sector. This program aims to connect students to Canadian cultural sector employers with wage subsidies for placements that offer students relevant work experience to their field of study.

Hire students! Get a salary subsidy of up to $7,500 till March 31st, 2022.

With the SWP program, over 150 placements are anticipated in not-for-profit and for-profit employers of all sizes. Eligible employers and students may receive a wage subsidy for up to 75%, to a maximum of $7,500.

Strengthening the Canadian Cultural Sector.

Students will have the opportunity to apply learned skills through a paid position related to their field of study and develop skills that will allow them to integrate seamlessly into the workforce. Employers will be able to engage with post-secondary institutions and students to align skills development to the labour market demand.


For more information, consult our information package , sign up for our information session or fill out our employer request intake form.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement.

Share your story of cultural resilience!

Share your story of cultural resilience, and have it amplified!

Many members of the Canadian cultural sector have shown incredible creativity and adaptability in responding to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Hill Strategies is currently collecting stories of resilience and innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic for Cultural Resilience: Using Innovation to Stabilize in Times of Crisis, a research-action initiative from the Creative City Network of Canada in partnership with the Cultural Human Resources Council and Les Arts et la Ville. Stories submitted at www.culturalresilience.ca will be listed and amplified for at least one year (from August 2021 to August 2022). Some stories will be investigated further and profiled online and in subsequent training programs. Submit your story today!
