The Aboriginal Program is designed to support independent Aboriginal production in Canada. 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 recognizes the unique circumstances of the Aboriginal-language television market and the Aboriginal production community, and it has tailored the Aboriginal Program to reflect those realities. Funding is allocated according to a selective process using an evaluation grid. For details, read the Aboriginal Program guidelines.
To access funding a project must meet all requirements set out in the 2014-2015 Guidelines. Only applications that meet all requirements will be considered.
