Over the past year, ELAN’s Québec Relations project has identified a wide range of funding sources available within the provincial government that respond to the diverse needs of English-speaking arts organizations. Based on this extensive research, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new searchable funding platform (click here) that presents key information, translated into English, for over 100 programs offered by various provincial ministries and agencies.

By simply selecting the search criteria that match your organization’s profile, the platform will provide you with all relevant funding options, each clearly displaying eligibility criteria, program deadlines, funding amounts and any other information that will help you identify grants and begin submitting applications with greater confidence.

That said, we know the process of applying for new funding can feel overwhelming, especially for first-time applicants. That is why, in addition to this new platform, the Québec Relations project has resources available to assist organizations and simplify the application process. We are available to discuss your funding needs, suggest programs to consider, and provide access to subsidized grant writing and editing services to help improve your chances for success. Simply contact research@quebec-elan.org or telephone Nick Maturo at 514-935-3312 ext. 28 to discuss your organization’s needs and the resources we can offer.

Finally, as an introduction to this important new web platform, we will be hosting a webinar on March 19th at 2 PM to walk first-time users through the interface, highlight key features and answer any questions. Click here for information on how to join the webinar.

We thank the Secretariat for relations with English-speaking Quebecers for their support.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
