Programs

Francophone Minority

The Francophone Minority Program supports productions which reflect the realities of living in French-language communities outside of Quebec. Funding under this Program is open to Canadian companies located outside of Quebec who produce primarily in French.

As part of the CMF's Convergent Stream, projects funded must include content to be developed and produced for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.
