The Diverse Languages Program supports productions reflecting Canadian diversity by funding projects in languages other than English, French, or Aboriginal languages. This program is part of the CMF's convergent stream; thus, projects funded through this program must include content to be developed for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.
