Program Summaries

 

The Canadian Media Producers Association’s (CMPA) National Mentorship Program (NMP) is Canada’s launching pad for the next generation of film, television and interactive media producers.

Each of our mentorship programs runs once a year, with a call for applications generally in the summer and fall; however, deadlines vary from year to year.

We continually work on securing funding for new programs. Online application forms and deadlines for new and existing programs are posted as soon as they become available. To receive an email when a new program is launched, sign up for our notification list here.
