Description

Canadian Heritage is responsible for formulating policies and delivering programs that help all Canadians participate in their shared cultural and civic life. We support initiatives that engage Canadians and make them proud of our rich and diverse heritage.The Department’s main activities involve funding community and other third party organizations to promote the benefits of culture, identity and sport for Canadians, which represents approximately 80 percent of its total budget.

Objective

The Government of Canada has recently announced Canada's Policy on Audiovisual Treaty Coproduction and completed industry consultation on its implementation. We are interested to share our new coproduction approach as well as exchange information and knowledge on film and video policies, programs and incentives with foreign partners.
