Let’s spark a conversation

2021 CMF Cross-Canada Virtual Consultations

Hello everyone,

At Prime Time I announced that the Canada Media Fund (CMF) is launching its virtual cross-country consultations. We’re ready to go! I invite you to participate between March 16 and April 9.

Our goal is to hear from you to identify the tools and approaches that will make our industry stronger. What are the best ways to support our screen-based sector as it recovers from the pandemic, grows, generates great content in television and interactive digital media, and competes successfully in the global marketplace? What is the best way to support creators and companies to achieve their goals?

We really want everyone involved in the creation, production, and distribution of screen content to participate, even if you haven’t received funding from us in the past.

I invite you to read our background paper for more information. It has some questions for you to consider.

Then, sign up here for one of our virtual town hall meetings.

Or please share your thoughts with us by filling out our online questionnaire before April 16, 2021 at 7:59 p.m. PT / 10:59 p.m. ET.

In addition to the town halls, we will be speaking with industry funders, associations, unions and guilds, broadcasters, distributors, and representatives from Black and Indigenous communities. We will ensure that these meetings are inclusive of the many communities in the television and digital media industry.

Together, let’s spark courage.

I look forward to seeing or hearing from you virtually.

Thank you,

Valerie Signature
