**Due to a high demand for the Quebec French Regional Development and Predevelopment program, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications from producers who wish to receive funds as part of this program.

The Development Program supports projects at the development and pre-development stages. This program is part of the CMF’s Convergent Stream; thus, projects funded through this program must include content to be developed for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.

The CMF strives to balance the development of content that reflects the diverse languages and regions of Canada. The Development Program includes funding mechanisms to achieve this, although development funds have also been earmarked in our other programs as well. Producers developing Aboriginal-language content should refer to the Aboriginal Program Guidelines for more information. The same applies for francophone producers outside Quebec, who should refer to the Francophone Minority Program Guidelines.

To access funding a project must meet all requirements set out in the 2016-2017 Guidelines. Only applications that meet all requirements will be considered.
