The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television is dedicated to addressing the evolving needs of its constituents and the industry it serves.

Appeals and Recommendations for changes to the Rules & Regulations (i.e. eligibility, category changes/additions, etc.) may be made for the television and digital media categories within the Canadian Screen Awards as follows:

Appeals to the Rules (to be considered for the 2023 Canadian Screen Awards):

All appeals will be reviewed by the Academy and if necessary, will be reviewed by the Television, Digital Media, and News & Sports Rules & Regulations Committees and/or the Academy’s board of directors.

The Academy’s decision is final.

Recommendations for the Rules (to be considered for the 2024 Canadian Screen Awards): 

The Academy receives all recommendations to compile for the Television and Digital Media Rules & Regulations Committees. If the respective committee approves a recommendation, it will be presented to the Academy’s Board of Directors for final approval.
