The CMPA lobbies federal and provincial regulators to ensure that the interests of our members are considered.
Each year our members create 1000s of hours of original content - across all genres - from drama to comedy, documentary to youth.
The CMPA lobbies government and regulators on rights, finance, labour agreements, policy and other business issues.
CMPA is proud to have supported the translation of YMA’s Digital Toolkit, a highly useful tool for producers operating websites or apps, particularly those aimed at children. Created by the Youth Media Alliance, the Digital Toolkit is a practical guide that addresses legal and ethical issues faced by producers concerning the following topics: safety, moderation, online payment, advertising, marketing, personal information and more. We thank the Youth Media Alliance, Canada Media Fund, OMDC and all the authors and partners who helped make this very constructive tool available to Canadian producers.
New faces added to the stellar speaker line up represent CAA, WME, Facebook, NRK, FilmBuff, Tribal DDB, Solutions Research Group, Magnify Digital & Bell Media. Read more >>>
