This principle is an integral part of Quebecor's corporate culture. That is why, every year, we provide financial aid to so many philanthropic and charitable causes. Quebecor supports a wide variety of cultural organizations and events in different ways in order to help preserve our cultural heritage, bring it to a wider audience, and encourage new talent.It is also actively involved in the community in vital fields such as health, education, the environment and entrepreneurship.

Quebecor conceived and launched Éléphant: The memory of Québec cinema, a large-scale project to digitize in HD and restore Québec's heritage of feature films and make it accessible. More than 200 movies are now available 24/7 on Videotron’s illico service (on channel 900, illico.tv and illico mobile). The films are also being gradually added, in the original version with subtitles, to iTunes in Canada, the U.S., France and all other European and African countries where French or English is one of the official languages. The Éléphant website at www.elephant.canoe.ca contains the largest existing database and information bank on Québec cinema.

Quebecor also supports many causes such as SACEF’s Concours Ma première Place des Arts, the Correspondances d'Eastman, Espace Félix-Leclerc, the Festival International de la poésie de Trois-Rivières and Montréal Museum Day. Quebecor has been the major partner of the Théâtre du Rideau Vert since 2005 and has given the theatre a new start and a new lease on life.

Quebecor supports numerous hospitals, health care institutions and medical research organizations. It backs a host of community organizations that help the most disadvantaged members of society. Education and young people also figure at the top of the Corporation's list of social priorities.
