Financial support and granting conditions

Financial support

Under the program, the Ministère offers non-recurring financial support based on the duration of the project. The maximum amount granted is 90% of the project’s eligible expenses without exceeding:

  • $50,000 for a project lasting up to 12 months;
  • $100,000 for a project lasting more than 12 months but not more than 24 months;
  • $150,000 for a project lasting more than 24 months but not more than 36 months.

The activities must be carried out between the signing date of the financial assistance agreement by all the parties and the completion date of the project as stipulated therein.

Contribution of recipient

A minimum financial contribution of 10% of the project’s eligible expenses is required from the recipient or its non-government partners.

Cumulative financial assistance

Cumulative direct or indirect financial assistance from departments, agencies and Crown corporations or state-owned enterprises of the Québec government or the Government of Canada, as well as from municipal entities must not exceed 90% of the eligible expenses. In calculating this cumulative assistance, the contribution from the recipient or its non-government partners is not included.

For the purposes of the rules for cumulative public financial assistance, the term municipal entities refers to the municipal bodies as defined in section 5 of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (CQLR, chapter A-2.1).

When a project targets a clientele that is under the responsibility of another department, that body will be asked for a notice of relevance to ensure that any financial assistance given under the program will not lead to duplication.
