Minister of Canadian Heritage Steven Guilbeault returns to Prime Time
We’re delighted to announce that Minister of Canadian Heritage Steven Guilbeault will return to Prime Time as a keynote speaker this year!
While it’s been a big year for the industry on the legislative front, marked by the tabling of the historic Broadcast Modernization Act in November, the pandemic has also had a significant impact on the Canadian film and TV production sector. Throughout it all, the Minister and the federal government have been key partners, delivering much-needed and targeted support for the industry, including the Heritage COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funds and an insurance fund to get Canadian productions back up and running.
At Prime Time Online 2021, Minister Guilbeault will be joined by CMPA President and CEO Reynolds Mastin to discuss progress on the new legislation, how the federal government has and will continue to support the industry throughout the pandemic, and his vision for the future of the Canadian screen-based production sector.
