MIPCOM Spotlight: Canada Media Fund


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) is a unique private-public partnership created to support television and digital media production in Canada.

“Through funding received by the Government of Canada and Canada’s cable, satellite and IPTV distributors, the CMF develops policies and funding programs that directly impact the country’s audiovisual production industry,” says Valerie Creighton, the president and CEO of the CMF. She says that maximizing the potential of co-productions is one of the CMF’s goals for the current year. “This is why we are developing and renewing partnerships with funding organizations similar to ours in countries around the world,” Creighton notes. She adds that, “in addition to funding content, we provide research that contributes to Canada’s competitive advantage.”

“Developing new international partnerships and co-production opportunities for Canadian producers continues to be a top priority,” Creighton says.
