Programs

Slate Development Pilot Program

The Slate Development Pilot Program (the “SDPP”), is designed to offer more flexibility to Eligible Applicants and allow them to choose and fund their development projects without the requirement of an attached Canadian Broadcaster (or other triggering entity). Eligible Applicants to the Program will receive a notification from the CMF outlining details of the Slate Development Envelope (“SDE”) Allocation in a CMF Letter of Agreement.

PERSONA-ID, CMF’s Self-Identification System
In order to be eligible to the Program, all Applicant shareholders and corporate directors must complete the CMF’s Self-Identification System (“Persona ID”) process.

Eligible Applicants must complete, fully-execute and return their Slate Development Envelope Allocation Letter of Agreement with their application to this Program.
