Performance Envelope

The objective of the Performance Envelope Program is to encourage partnerships between broadcasters, television producers, and digital media producers to create convergent content that Canadian audiences want to consume anytime, anywhere.

The majority of the CMF’s funding is disbursed through the Performance Envelope Program. 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.

Through this program, the CMF allocates funding envelopes to English and French broadcasters in an amount that reflects their track record of supporting Canadian programming. Broadcasters commit these funds to Canadian projects that they believe will appeal to their viewers. Even though broadcasters are allocated a funding envelope, the actual funding is paid directly to the producer according to a payment schedule. For details, read the Performance Envelope 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.
