Mentorship

Partner With Us

 

Interested in partnering with us to offer a branded mentorship program?

The Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) is continually developing innovative training and professional development programs to reflect the changing needs of our industry and the changing face of its workforce.

 

Why the CMPA?

The association has been engaged in training the next generation of screen-based content producers since 1995, and has helped launch the careers of close to 1,000 film, television, and interactive media professionals. Thanks to the skills and proficiencies acquired during their placements, more than 80 % of our alumni go on to full time jobs in the industry or start their own companies. Their internships give them a competitive edge and the inside track to a career in the exciting and rapidly-evolving world of film, television and interactive media. Our commitment to quality mentoring and hands-on learning has earned the CMPA its well-deserved reputation as a ‘Best Practice’ leader in on-the-job training in Canada.
