Overview | Canadian Media Producers Association

Industry Information


The Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) is Canada’s national trade association for independent producers.  We represent hundreds of production companies engaged in the production and distribution of English-language television programs, feature films and new media. In 2016, the production sector generated over $8.5 billion in GDP and created over 140,600 high-quality, full-time jobs.

The film and television production industry in Canada is a major source of economic activity and jobs for Canadians across the country.  The industry is comprised of three key sectors.


Canadian Production

As the largest sector, Canadian production includes television programs and feature films created by independent production companies and television programs made by production companies associated with Canadian broadcasters. These programs and films are certified as Canadian content by the Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO) or the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).


Foreign Location and Service Production

This sector is the second-largest segment and is largely comprised of feature films and television programs filmed in Canada by foreign producers or by Canadian service producers on behalf of foreign producers. The majority of foreign location and service production is made by producers based in the United States; however, approximately 10-15% of this activity is by Canadian producers.


Broadcaster In-house Production

Though the smallest segment, this sector includes television programs made by Canadian broadcasters in their own facilities and is comprised of news, sports and current affairs programming.
