Pan-Canadian Consultation

Telefilm Canada has officially relaunched its Pan-Canadian consultation with members of the industry on the Success Index, the backbone of its program architecture, which will also inform the optimization of its financing programs such as Development and Talent to Watch.

These consultations will be transparent, inclusive and held in both Official Languages. Consultations will take the form of an online survey, virtual townhalls and meetings with established working groups.
