Emergency Assistance
(COVID-19)

Emergency Assistance

We have created 2 email addresses and 2 simplified forms for artists and organizations currently funded by the Conseil for an ongoing project or for their operations. These tools will make it possible to receive and process emergency aid applications.

This emergency assistance is not a compensatory or anticipatory measure. It is special financial assistance that we are freeing up from the budgets of existing programs to deal with short-term situations. For instance,  cash flow problems to ensure essential services for the next month or additional costs incurred by artists abroad who must return to Québec.

Artists’ remuneration

Artists and cultural workers have access to government assistance for the self-employed, which is the best resource in the circumstances. Arts organizations can also apply for the wage subsidy program announced by the federal government.

Please rest assured that we are tracking any developments and that we are actively monitoring the situation.
