Canada Media Fund

What is Canada Media Fund?

The CMF announced a program budget of $353 million in 2019-2020(6) to support the Canadian television and digital media industries through two streams of funding: (a) the “Convergent Stream”, which supports the creation of convergent television and digital media content for consumption by Canadians anytime, anywhere; and (b) the “Experimental Stream”, which encourages the development of innovative, interactive digital media content and software applications. The CMF Program operates a multitude of funding programs over both Streams, some on a first come first served basis and others on an annual or bi-annual basis. Companies access the CMF Program through an open tender process by demonstrating their applicability on a competitive basis.

The majority of the CMF Program funding takes the form of repayable contributions (under certain conditions) of up to 75% of the eligible costs. Under the CMF Program there is a timing delay between when a Borrower incurs and accrues the expenses, files the reimbursement claim and receives the funding from the Government, creating a bridge finance opportunity for the Partnership.
