Predevelopment Program

Due to a high demand for the English-language portion of the Predevelopment Program’s budget, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications for English-language projects. Applicants with French-language projects may still apply.

The Predevelopment Program, which forms part of the CMF’s Convergent Stream, allocates funding to Eligible Projects at the beginning of a Project’s creative process.
