“The CMPA welcomes Minister Joly’s launch of Creative Export Canada. The ongoing digital shift and evolution of content distribution models have created new opportunities to showcase Canadian programming to a wide international audience. The global appetite for independently-produced Canadian content has never been higher, and the combination of on-the-ground support in key international markets and the newly announced $7-million-per-year fund will help Canada’s independent producers capitalize on this demand.
