Cultural development in the Fransaskois community takes place on an individual level and in the larger community
Many publications are used to promote artists. These initiatives are mostly spearheaded by the Conseil culturel fransaskois (CCF) in collaboration with its provincial and local partners.
To identify and assist new talents, the CCF uses tools such as: the RAMDAM competition, Galas (Fransaskoise and Chant'Ouest), as well training and workshops.
The attention given to communities includes the organisation of summer festivals such as carnavals, theatrical festivals, the Youth Fransaskois Games, the Fransaskois Day, the Fransaskois Song Gala, and other annual events. In addition, the CCS provides programs that include the Coup de coeur francophone, the programme d'aide aux membres associatifs (PAMA) and the Réseau de diffusion de spectacles de la Saskatchewan (RDSSK).
The CCF also publishes a community newsletter four times a year, the "Art en lys", which is a directory of Francophone artists in Saskatchewan.
