Canadian Media Producers Association

Be heard. Make a difference. Join us today.

Who we are

The Canadian Media Producers Association is Canada’s leading trade association for independent producers. We represent hundreds of companies engaged in the development, production and distribution of English-language television programs, feature films and digital media.

The CMPA works on behalf of members to promote and stimulate the Canadian production industry. Our goal is to ensure the continued success of Canada’s independent production sector and a future for content that is made by Canadians for both Canadian and international audiences.

On behalf of our members, we actively lobby federal and provincial governments on various policy areas, including broadcasting, copyright, taxation and trade. We negotiate labour agreements with key unions and guilds and we support producers when dealing with these agreements.
