Northern Incentive

Due to a high demand for the Northern Incentive (Production), the CMF will no longer be accepting applications for this program. The Northern Incentive (Development) will remain open until the Final Closing Date, or until funds for that program are depleted, whichever comes first.

The CMF’s mandate includes support for funding to production across the country. As such, the CMF is continuing its Northern Incentive for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

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.
