The global media production sector is undergoing a period of profound digital innovation, which has implications for audiences and industry alike. In Canada, this shifting environment has called attention to existing policies, programs and regulatory frameworks that have served our production industry well for many years.

The CMPA’s submission to the Canadian Content in a Digital World consultations is rooted in the belief that the outstanding film, television and digital productions we create here at home will continue to captivate audiences across the country and around the world, but will increasingly be viewed on a range of different platforms, channels and screens. 

We applaud the leadership of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, on this initiative and we stand ready to help develop an updated set of policies and programs that will allow the production sector to thrive, so we can create jobs, promote our culture, and produce great, entertaining content.
