Indigenous Working Group

Indigenous Working Group – a vital feedback and consultation tool:

Cross-country conversations with Indigenous creators began in 2016.  These conversations helped shaped Telefilm’s path forward toward establishing tools to better support Indigenous talent.  In order to ensure that Telefilm maintains informed input from Indigenous communities, Telefilm established an Indigenous Working Group in 2017.  This rotating dynamic group of Indigenous stakeholders is a source of new ideas and feedback on policies and initiatives.  The expectation of members is that they provide insight and feedback from filmmakers in their region, as well as help share outcomes that arise from these conversations.

Composition of the group

The group is comprised of two members from each of the six major production regions:

  • Arctic Region
  • Atlantic Region
  • British Columbia
  • Ontario
  • Quebec
  • Prairies

Rotating Participation: Members now rotate every two years.
