Toronto, March 10, 2022 – The Canada Media Fund (CMF) today announced it will provide close to $3M in funding to 39 companies through the Slate Development Pilot Program. Each funded company will receive $75,000 to develop up to three projects.

A total of 26 of the 39 funded companies work on English-language content and 13 focus on the French-language market. A substantial portion of this funding will go to regional companies, with 18 out of 39 companies being based outside Toronto and Montreal.
