CFM and Telefilm Allocations for COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund

The COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sport Organizations announced by the Prime Minister on April 17, 2020 is an additional temporary relief measure created to help alleviate the financial pressures of cultural, heritage and sport organizations facing significant losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Its objectives are to maintain jobs and support business continuity for organizations whose cashflow and operational viability have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and to stabilize a sector that is a major driver of the Canadian economy.

The Emergency Support Fund complements other Government of Canada measures to help Canadian workers and employers impacted by the pandemic. To take a look at the guidelines for the Canadian Media Fund and Telefilm, please visit the links below.
