Sector Development Support

After reviewing the current Guidelines, first time applicants to Sector Development are encouraged to set up an initial meeting by emailing [email protected] to discuss the eligibility of their proposed activities.

The CMF’s Sector Development Support is project-based funding to support industry initiatives which demonstrate the potential to positively impact Canada’s audiovisual ecosystem by addressing industry gaps in distinct and identified areas, including Canada’s regions and Indigenous and Equity-Seeking Communities. Successful projects should lead to tangible benefits for multiple members of the screen-based sector and cannot primarily benefit any one creator or company.
