Québec Relations Updates!

Are you an individual artist or collective looking to develop your practice and pursue new opportunities but not sure how to move forward? Or maybe you’re feeling limited by the funding available to you and wondering how you can access a larger and more diverse range of grants? Québec Relations can help you take the next step! Join us for our next webinar session on Thursday, August 20 from 2 to 3 PM as we explain how not-for-profit status can open up a whole new world of funding possibilities. We’ll help you decide whether registering is right for you by discussing how artists and collectives can benefit from not-for-profit status, as well as the added responsibilities this entails. We’ll also describe the registration process and walk you through all the necessary steps to getting your organization up and running. Finally, we’ll explain the differences in provincial funding for individual artists compared to registered not-for-profits to give you a better idea of what you might be missing out on, and conclude with some notable examples of funding available only to not-for-profit organizations – both in the arts and beyond.

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.
