Arts and culture are exceptional ways to bring people together. Francos de Montréal proves this year after year, as it attracts music lovers and artists of all stripes to the city, who share a common passion and love for Francophone music. The Government of Canada is happy to be associated with this expansive musical gathering, which contributes to the vitality of the city’s cultural scene as well as its economy.
As Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions on behalf of the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, we’d like to thank the organizers, artists and everyone else who help make Francos such a spectacular summer event.
Enjoy the festivities!

Valérie PlanteMayor of MontréalProudly supporting Les Francos
Les Francos, is a must-see summer event in Montréal, for residents and visitors alike.
It is pure musical bliss that combines all the elements that make Montréal’s charm: cultural and generational diversity, discovery, unlikely encounters, and all the emotions heightened by the thousands of hearts beating in unison.
A great fan of French-language music myself, I wish us all a series of performances that will once more enhance Montréal’s exposure as North America’s largest Francophone cultural metropolis.
I would like to congratulate all the organizers for promoting creative vitality, all the while contributing to Montréal’s touristic appeal.
Have a great festival!
