The Olivier is granted by the "Association des professionnels de l'industrie de l'humour (APIH), which translates to Association of Humor Professionals, a professional honorary organization, which recognizes excellence in many aspects of Quebec's humor industry. Finalists for the Olivier of the Year are chosen by a jury but it is the public that will determine the winner by voting during the gala either by phone or by Internet:
