Let us mention that “Cultural Days” were introduced in 1997 in order to enhance and reinforce the efforts to democratize culture in Québec. They are the result of a fruitful association of the cultural milieu with public and private partners such as the “Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec”, the “Ministère des Affaires municipales et des Régions”, “TD Canada Trust, Hydro-Québec” and many media companies collaborating to deploy the campaign across Quebec.
