Searchable Quebec Funding Platform – in English

Finding information about arts funding in English in Quebec can be challenging. This site presents translated summaries of information obtained from each the websites of various Quebec funding bodies. We strive to ensure that all program information is as accurate and up-to-date as possible in order to help you navigate the funding opportunities in Quebec. Visit our searchable funding platform to find Quebec arts funding for your project.

Free Funding Consultations and Grant Application Assistance

Québec Relations offers one-on-one consultations to help you find the grant programs that best meet you needs and to make sense of the eligibility criteria. When it comes time to apply to any Quebec-based funder (e.g. CALQ, SODEC), we offer referrals to work with an experienced grant consultant – at no charge – to teach you the grant-writing fundamentals and help you apply with greater confidence. Contact us today at research@quebec-elan.org to request your consultation. Click here to learn about other services and benefits for ELAN members.

About Québec Relations

When the project first launched in 2018, Québec Relations had one primary goal: to improve the flow of information between the ministries and funding bodies of the Government of Quebec and the English-language arts community. Through extensive research and documentation, we worked to help members of the community to better understand the services and funding sources available to them.

Now in its fourth year, the project has grown to encompass two main areas: its continued research phase, where surveys, focus groups and consultations allow us to better understand the community’s needs; and its resource phase, where we turn that research into action to help meet those needs. Based on in-depth feedback from surveys and focus groups, we’ve been able to develop resources such as:

“Thank you a million times for ELAN’s support! It’s seriously career-changing.”

“I’m glad I attended the session. It was very informative. I have renewed hope. I’m going to try CALQ again. I tried years ago and gave up.”

“I have to say I am blown away by the workshops and resources offered by ELAN, including today’s Grant Writing Workshop.”

“Thank you Nick and Guy for the Herculean task you have accomplished in creating this comprehensive information platform. Navigating the plethora programs can be overwhelming, particularly in a second language, so this will be very helpful.”

During COVID-19 and social distancing, ELAN and Québec Relations have connected with our community by providing a series of webinars on funding and resources in the province. These webinar videos are free for public viewing.
