The Quebecor Fund’s contribution to eligible projects is refundable financial assistance divided into two elements:
- A supplement to the guaranteed minimum. The Quebecor Fund’s contribution for each eligible project can reach a maximum of $200,000, as a supplement to the distributor’s guaranteed minimum. This contribution does not exceed 10% of the production budget.
- A supplement to marketing costs. An additional contribution of up to $40,000 will be paid for an interactive marketing strategy, subject to the distributor’s contribution of an equal amount. All media placement amounts must be spent exclusively on Canadian media.
The total amount will be paid directly to the distributor upon signing the contract. The distributor agrees to pay the total amount granted as a supplement of the minimum amount guaranteed, less administration costs of no more than five (5) percent of said amount, by the first day of filming at the latest.
