On the Road is inspired by The Presenter’s Handbook and the There and Back Guidebook, originally published through the Touring Office of the Canada Council for the Arts in the early 1990s. In 2004, through the financial resources of the Canada Council and the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Arts Presentation Canada, a team was put together to revamp these materials and to garner fresh information from experienced professionals in the field: these online guides are the result of a year-long process of consultation. In 2010, both the Touring Guide and the Presenter’s Guide were updated with new material. A third guide, the International Touring Guide will be added to this site shortly.
