Canadian Media Producers Association
The Canadian Media Producers Association is Canada’s trade association for independent producers. We represent hundreds of companies engaged in the development, production and distribution of English-language content for TV, feature film and digital media channels.
The CMPA’s diverse membership produces an incredible variety of projects, from acclaimed indie films to animated kids’ shows—and everything in between. Have a favourite Canadian TV show? Chances are one of our members produced it. Those Canadian films getting all the hype on the festival circuit? Again, it’s more than likely you’re hearing about our members’ work.
We work on behalf of our members to ensure a bright future for domestic media production and Canadian content.
