Strengthen community vitality
Support Program for Organizations Serving the English-Speaking Communities

The Québec government values a sense of belonging and is attached to the values of democracy, openness and inclusion. In addition to its French-speaking majority, Québec recognizes 11 Aboriginal nations and also includes Québec English-speaking communities.

It is important for the English-speaking community to feel fully at home in Québec. It has deep-seated roots here, plays an important role in its economic development and is contributing to building a modern Québec and to the expression of its identity. Québec as a whole benefits from its contribution.

The Program is intended to contribute to the vitality of English-speaking communities, enhance their ability to participate fully in Québec society, bolster the ability of communities to act in various areas of intervention, and enable them to work in collaboration with the Québec government.

More specifically, it makes provision to support the organizations, institutions and partnership networks that serve English-speaking communities by offering them operational support or support for concrete local, regional or province-wide projects.

Eligibility

The Program is intended for non-profit organizations that offer or wish to offer services to English-speaking communities, social economy enterprises including cooperatives, and municipal entities and public institutions in the education and health and social services sectors.
