Canadian Program Certification

If your production is independently produced and meets certification requirements as a Canadian program, you can apply to the CRTC for Canadian Program Certification.

Certain conditions have to be met before you can file your application: the production must be underway, all key creative personnel have to be under contract and committed budgets must be in place.
