Northern Incentive

Due to high demand for the Northern Incentive: Development and Production programs, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications for the programs’ First Opening Dates.

The CMF’s mandate includes support for funding to production across the country. As such, the CMF is continuing its Northern Incentive.

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.
