The Quebec Culture Capital Fund was created on November 7, 2011 by the Government of Québec and the Fonds de solidarité FTQ to provide innovative financing to Québec cultural organisations interested in exporting their projects and products.

The Quebec Culture Capital Fund has a $100 million budget to support the marketing and export of major Québec cultural products.

It proposes new and innovative financial instruments in the financing of Québec cultural organisations, which take the form of equity voting shares, preferred shares, and loans.
