Creative Export Canada Fund

On June 26, 2018, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, former Minister of Canadian Heritage, announced Canada’s first Creative Export Strategy. This is to promote Canadian creative industries through strengthening Canada’s presence in global markets. The strategy, culling from other successful Canadian Heritage programs like the Canada Periodical Fund, targets key export markets by adding new investments through a new funding program.

The Government has invested $125 million over five years to implement this plan, which includes the new funding program Creative Export Canada. The Creative Export Canada Strategy will provide funding of $7 million per year for innovative export projects that amplify the creative industries’ international reach, increase their capacity to export their brands and content, increase export revenues, and heighten the discoverability of Canadian content across platforms and formats.

The new Creative Export Strategy increases funds for export activities through five existing programs iwhich include:

  • Canada Arts Presentation Fund
  • Canada Book Fund
  • Canada Music Fund
  • Canada Periodical Fund
  • Telefilm Canada – through the Export Assistance Program

Canadian organizations that are ready to export, and work in a creative industry or in support of one are eligible to apply.

To be eligible for funding, an applicant must be either:

  • a for-profit organization;
  • a not-for-profit organization; or
  • an Indigenous band council, tribal council, or other Indigenous government or organization (First Nations, Inuit or Métis).

Organizations must be Canadian-owned and -controlled, and incorporated under the laws of Canada, a province or a territory.

Only projects that have a direct impact on the following creative industries are eligible:

  • audiovisual
  • design (limited to exhibit design, fashion design, product design, public art design, urban design)
  • interactive digital media
  • music
  • performing arts
  • publishing
