The Brome-Missisquoi CLD offers counselling-services to Brome-Missisquoi’s artists and cultural organizations to help them in their initiatives and development projects. The CLD can provide such things as guidance, help in drawing up a business plan, professional accompaniment, as well as project-funding solutions.

Subsidies and loans

Cultural entrepreneurs may be eligible for a number of subsidies or loans to fund their projects. Many programs are available at the Brome-Missisquoi CLD.

Certain cultural projects may also be eligible to receive funding from the Fonds de développement de l’offre touristique des Cantons-de-l’Est (FDOT) or from the Pacte rural.

Other programs are available with the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec, the SODEC or with Canada’s Economic Action Plan.

Please contact a counsellor to find out about the subsidy programs that are eligible for your project.
