Government Relations & Regulatory Affairs

Other Government Organizations

The Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) deals with federal crown corporations and agencies regarding programs and regulations related to the funding and certification of domestic and service production in the film, television and digital media industry.


Telefilm Canada is a federal cultural agency dedicated to developing and promoting the Canadian audiovisual industry. The main funds administered by Telefilm are the Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Canada Feature Film Fund (CFFF). The corporation also certifies treaty co-productions on behalf of the Minister of Canadian Heritage.

The Canada Feature Film Fund (CFFF) is involved in the development, production and marketing of Canadian feature films that have high box-office potential. It supports a broad range of genres, budgets, companies and regions.

The Canada Media Fund (CMF) champions the creation and promotion of successful, innovative, Canadian content and software applications for current and emerging digital platforms through financial support and industry research. Created by Canada’s cable and satellite distributors and the Government of Canada, the CMF aspires to connect Canadians to our creative expressions, to each other, and to the world.

The National Film Board (NFB) is Canada’s public film producer and distributor. It is an agency of the Government of Canada with both English and French production branches. The NFB  distributes documentary, animation, alternative drama and digital media productions. It also administers funding programs to support filmmakers.

Rules and Regulations regarding Canadian Content

In order to qualify as “Canadian” for purposes of a broadcast content regulation, or to take advantage of certain fiscal measures, productions must first be certified as “Canadian content.” There are two government bodies that certify a production as “Canadian”:

  • The Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO) operates under the Department of Canadian Heritage. It reviews the Canadian content of productions applying for the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC). CAVCO guidelines for Canadian production certification can be found here.
  • In addition to its role as a regulator, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) determines how much of a broadcaster’s licence schedule must be reserved for Canadian content. The CRTC reviews applications for Canadian content for broadcast on conventional, specialty and pay televisions services that fall into several categories: those not eligible for tax credits at CAVCO; productions were the producer chooses not to apply to CAVCO; productions dubbed into an official (or native Canadian) language of Canada; and productions where the drama time credit is requested. CRTC guidelines are available here.
