The CMPA is dedicated to helping Canadian producers establish international partnerships and bring their content to screens around the world.
To thrive in today’s global marketplace, Canadian content needs to travel across our borders and onto international screens.
The CMPA works to:
Promote co-production opportunities for CMPA members.
Expand our members’ international market knowledge.
Strengthen our links with offshore industry organizations looking to broaden their own international market reach and presence.
The CMPA is as interested in working within established markets and festivals as it is in building strategic industry contacts and exploring new opportunities outside of these.
Optimizing your digital presence for export
The CMPA is currently developing a workshop that focuses on creating a digital marketing strategy, including training on creating websites & social media engagement strategy, optimizing website content, learning about analytics and SEO specifically to prepare for export and to attract international partners.
The training is set to take place in February – exact dates to be confirmed. Please complete the statement of interest and needs assessmentif you would like to participate.
Exporting Screen-based content and services training module
We worked with a team of Certified International Trade Professionals (CITPs) specializing in trade in services to develop the ‘Exporting Screen-Based Content and Services’ workshop. It is designed to offer you comprehensive, hands-on training to facilitate selling screen-based content and services into new international markets.
In addition to the recordings from the sessions, you will find training materials, exercises and online export resources to assist you and your company in expanding your business internationally.
