Supporting arts & culture

Heffel is proud to partner with, and provide support for important cultural institutions and initiatives that share our passion for the advancement of visual arts and culture.

We have had the pleasure of supporting exhibitions and events at world renowned museums including, but not limited to, the Art Gallery of Ontario, National Gallery of Canada, Audain Art Museum, Kunsthalle Munich, Dulwich Picture Gallery, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Beaverbrook Art Gallery and Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc among many others.

In 2021, Heffel established the Heffel Foundation, which provides ongoing philanthropic support to the visual arts in Canada. The Foundation provides important backing for cherished museums and galleries, scholarships encouraging further education in the arts, and so much more.

We look forward to continuing to work with our colleagues in museums, galleries and universities across the country, hosting lectures, supporting scholarships and hiring student interns. We strongly encourage collectors and art admirers to visit the important exhibitions in Canadian institutions in order to expand and share the collective knowledge of art and culture. At Heffel we pride ourselves on being there for our collectors and our community, and providing lasting support for the Canadian art world.
