Founded in 1999, the Quebecor Fund’s mission is to support the development, production, marketing and exportation of high-quality content, as well as its distribution on various platforms.
The Quebecor Fund was created through Videotron Ltd., which provides almost seven million dollars annually in broadcasting distribution undertaking contributions to the Canadian industry.
To date, through the Television Production Assistance Program – the ‘Convergent Production Support’ component and the ‘Creation of Intellectual Property Support’ component, and through the Film Production Assistance Program, the Quebecor Fund has helped producers and distributors produce numerous high-quality projects that have been broadcast on over 40 different Canadian networks and over 30 international networks.
Furthermore, through its Export Assistance Program (EXAP), the Quebecor Fund also supports initiatives aimed at developing and marketing audiovisual content adapted to markets outside of Quebec and internationally.
The Quebecor Fund, a non-profit organization (NPO), is a private fund incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act. Any recovery of equity investment and loans, as well as all return on investment and financing fees are reinvested in the Fund.
