Given the adoption of multiyear Guidelines (for 2012-2013 and 2013-2014) last April, the CMF will not conduct a cross-country series of focus groups in 2012-2013. Rather, the CMF will continue to invite the input and participation of all stakeholders through its on-line discussion forum, and make use of industry working groups and advisory committees to discuss specific policy issues.
The « Outreach and Consultation » section on the CMF website will keep you informed about the discussions at the various working groups and advisory committees. All documents presented and discussed during the working groups and the advisory committee meetings, as well as the calendar of meetings, will be available for download. You are invited to consult the updates on a regular basis and share your feedback on the revamped discussion forum.
This year’s consultation will continue to be primarily related to policy issues linked to the strategic objectives identified by the CMF’s Board of Directors as well as the ongoing imperative of simplification.
Last May, the CMF launched its Digital Media Performance Measurement Framework, a tool designed to measure the performance of digital media projects funded through the CMF’s Convergent and Experimental Streams. Since May 14, 2012, producers of funded projects have access to an online reporting form to report on audience and consumption data for funded projects.
One of the principal objectives of the framework is to establish the basis for digital media performance measurement, which would ultimately form part of the calculation of Performance Envelopes.
Accordingly, the CMF has identified the following issues for discussion and review by working groups or advisory committees. Members of the Working Groups and Advisory Committees will receive invitations to the meetings. Other sessions may be added subsequently as required.
