The AQA’s mission is to stimulate the growth of the animation industry in Quebec through concerted actions on four themes: creation, development, exhibition and financing. As the voice of a dynamic industry in constant change, AQA is a vector of change. In a spirit of collaboration, AQA rallies its members around animation-specific issues to ensure an adequate representation of our sector to policy makers and the broader media industry in Quebec and Canada.

Our Story

Established in 2011, to reinvigorate the once prolific animation industry in Quebec, AQA’s first order of business was a national consultation that resulted in an action plan, updated in 2015, which remains the association’s foundation.


QAA is privileged to have a Board of Directors of committed individuals who hail from all sectors of the animation industry. We are very grateful for their involvement!
