Northern Incentive

Second Opening Date: Due to a high demand for the Northern Incentive: Production, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications from applicants for the Second Opening Date.

The CMF’s mandate includes support for funding to production across the country. As such, the CMF is continuing its Northern Incentive.

As part of the CMF's Convergent Stream, projects funded must include content to be developed and produced for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.
