The Canada Media Fund (CMF) fosters, promotes, develops and finances the production of Canadian content and relevant applications for all audiovisual media platforms.

The CMF receives financial contributions from the Government of Canada and Canada’s cable, satellite and IPTV distributors.

Funding Model

The Canada Media Fund (CMF) delivers financial support to the Canadian television and digital media industries through two streams of funding.

The Experimental Stream encourages the development of innovative, interactive digital media content and software applications.

The Convergent Stream supports the creation of convergent television and digital media content for consumption by Canadians anytime, anywhere.

Funding Streams

 
 
The Convergent Stream supports Canadian projects that include content produced for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which is television. It is made up of various programs and incentives that target key activities and audiences.

Through the Convergent Stream, the CMF supports the creation of content in four underrepresented genres: drama, documentary, children’s & youth, and variety & performing arts.
