Broadcaster Envelope Program – English and French

The objective of the Broadcaster Envelope Program is to encourage partnerships between broadcasters, Distributors and producers to create content that Canadian audiences want to consume anytime, anywhere.  The majority of the CMF’s funding is disbursed through the Broadcaster Envelope Program.

Through this Program, the CMF allocates funding envelopes allocations to Canadian Broadcasters in an amount that reflects their track record of supporting Canadian programming. Broadcasters commit these funds to Canadian projects that they believe will appeal to their viewers. Even though Broadcasters receive a funding envelope allocation, the actual funding is paid directly to the Eligible Applicants according to a payment schedule.

Beginning in 2024-2025, English and French Broadcaster envelope allocations can be used for Eligible Projects at both the development and production stages.
