ELAN brings the concerns of the English-language arts community to key funders, including the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as federal agencies like CBC, NFB, CRTC, and Telefilm.
ELAN regularly meets with government and community leaders about issues like funding programs, market access, community broadcasting, and linguistic and cultural diversity.
ELAN amplifies the voices of its colleagues in other arts and culture organizations, as well as organizations supporting Quebec’s official language minority community.
