logo-chantouestAfter a year of lively discussions, cultural organizations from the West and the four regional Radio-Canada stations presented the first interprovincial song gala on June 8th, 1990 at la Faculté Saint-Jean in Edmonton. Since then, 150 different artists from the West and the North came onto the scene over the course of 23 editions.

Chant'Ouest – named in 1997- will soon finish its sixth lap. This is an achievement in this domain considering that it is the only francophone song contest in the country to take place annually across the provinces and territories. The fact that the Northern and the Western communities welcome Chant'Ouest successively, most often with entirely new teams, is a sign of dynamism and collaboration, which the organizers should be very proud of.

The next edition of Chant'Ouest will be in Regina, in September 2016.
We are proud to have Sophie Villeneuve from Yukon and winner of Pacifique en chanson 2016 to represent BC and Yukon at the event.

Chant'Ouest is a collaboration of all four Francophone Western Music events: Pacifique en chanson (BC), Polyfonik (AB), Nouvelle Scène (SK), Découvertes manitobaines en chanson (MB).
