The most supported artistic professions (in descending order) by the Foundation: actors, musicians, singers, dancers and choreographers, stage technicians and circus artists.

Since April 2021, in addition to offering financial assistance, the Artists' Foundation also made available a Psychosocial Support Fund for artists and cultural workers in the province of Quebec.

In the past year alone, the Foundation has granted nearly 3,000 donations to artists and cultural workers working in more than 40 fields of artistic practice. During this period of uncertain times, the artists can turn to the Artist's Foundation with confidence.
