Supporting artists and cultural workers



Montréal actively supports the presence in the City of creators, artists and craftspeople to enhance the quality of life of its citizens. To this end, the City offers a variety of subsidy programs for artists and cultural workers, as well as outreach activities to showcase local creative works through its dissemination network.

The Conseil annually supports more than 350 cultural organizations through grants, operational assistance, tours, residencies, awards and mobilization initiatives often created in partnership.
