The Government of Québec announces a second $100,000 contribution to the IFCD

On June 14, 2011, on the occasion of the Third Ordinary Session of the Conference of Parties to the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and the Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, the Minister of International Relations and the Minister responsible for La Francophonie, Ms. Monique Gagnon-Tremblay, announced on behalf of the Government of Québec, a second $100,000 contribution to the International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD).

IFCD is funded primarily through voluntary contributions from the Parties to the Convention. In 2008 the Government of Québec made an initial $100,000 contribution. This second contribution from Québec is paid in equal parts by the Ministère des Relations internationales and the Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine.
