AGF celebrates Canada's vibrant arts and culture scene. We believe the arts are essential to a thriving community. For decades, AGF has supported organizations that educate and invest in emerging talent, support authors, showcase new cinema and promote musical endeavours to give those in our community the opportunity to enjoy a rich variety of arts and culture. AGF was one of the early supporters of the Canadian Film Centre and the renowned Toronto International Film Festival and has over the years continued to pledge its support.
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has grown to become the world’s second largest film festival and is among the most prestigious events in this industry. TIFF’s objectives are to lead the world in cultural and creative discovery through the moving image and to place Canadian achievements in an international context.
During the festival, AGF brings together clients, partners, friends and colleagues to share their artistic appreciation for creativity and culture through film.

The Writers' Trust of Canada is a national charitable organization providing a level of support to writers unmatched by any other non-governmental organization. Through various programs, the Writers' Trust offers opportunity, rewards success and helps foster the growth of a community ensuring that amid the din of competing voices Canadian stories are shared.
At the annual Writers' Trust Gala, AGF hosts a table with a featured author. This event is a celebration of Canadian writing and Canadian authors that brings together the business and arts communities for an evening of creative competition that pits table versus table in a contest of writing talent.
It also includes the Literary Treasure Hunt, a game which invites guests to purchase a wrapped hardcover book in hopes of discovering a fantastic prize hidden inside.
