CMPA-BC actively represents the priorities of the independent production sector to government and related organizations.

On behalf of our members, we advocate in critical policy areas such as business development, funding, tax policy and export with municipal, provincial and federal governments. Where a provincial issue needs to be raised, CMPA-BC also appears before parliamentary and legislative committees to give insight into the development of policy, regulation and legislation.

CMPA-BC often collaborates with the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC (MPPIA) in joint government relations efforts. At the agency level, the CMPA regularly consults with the Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada and Creative BC to ensure that those programs respond to the needs of independent producers.
