A short and very useful course to learn about possible legal structures for artist collectives

Advance registration required (before February 17, 2023)

Offered in French only

The session is designed for artists working together to create shared artistic projects. Artists working collectively are often curious about possible legal structures to create, sustain or manage their work.

This three (3) hour, stand-alone module is the first of a two-part course. You can register for one or both, depending on your needs.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify different legal structures to run a collective.
  • Understand how this impacts taxation on grants and other revenues.
  • Understand how to process GST and PST on expenses and income.
  • Understand tax form requirements.


Member of the Quebec Chartered Professional Accountant Order since 2004, Philippe Beaulieu (MBA, CPA auditor, CA) runs his own artistic management firm offering administrative support and tax advice for artists and cultural workers.
