Major Partners

Once again this year, MCAF is presented in partnership with the SDC Rue Saint-Denis. In addition to the warm welcome of its merchants, the société de développement commercial (SDC) provides us with valuable financial and logistical support for the event.

Desjardins is actively involved in the community, especially with young people. They invite young and old to be swept away by the talent of cartoonists and will be presenting the live drawing animations in the SKETCH space at the festival.

La Presse joins our great celebration of comics as a media partner.Like us, they are eager to discuss current issues and encourage discussion, and will be presenting the round tables for the 12th edition of the festival.
The Montreal Comic Arts Festival  would like to thank all its partners for their precious collaboration.

Support the Festival

Become a Volunteer

MCAF has grown considerably and the festival now requires the help of around 200 volunteers to ensure smooth operations.

Volunteers like Fatima Gabriela who was asked why she liked to get involved in the festival.

“ For me, it’s the opportunity to introduce the extraordinary and magical universe of comics, especially to younger readers. I love the look in their eyes when I tell them this artist or that cartoonist will be signing.”

If you too would like to get involved, there is still time to sign up as a volunteer.
