(Montreal) Provincial Minister of Culture Mathieu Lacombe announced the creation of a committee which will look into the future of Quebec’s audiovisual industry.

The new committee will have the mandate to analyze and revise the financing system and the functioning of the industry.

“The challenge is more structural” and the financing model “dates from a time when the internet did not exist,” said the Minister of Culture during a press conference Monday morning in Montreal.

The former president and CEO of SODEC, Monique Simard, and the founder and president of URBANIA, Philippe Lamarre, will co-chair the committee.

The committee is expected to submit a report in May 2025.
