PATRON PARTNER

The Academy believes that this industry has a collective responsibility to contribute to diversity and equity. Storytellers change hearts and minds, shaping the way we perceive both individual and shared experience. We have the unique opportunity to make sure diverse voices are heard. But change must happen from both the bottom up and the top down.

With this in mind, the Academy is providing a number of initiatives to ensure that Black, Indigenous, People of Colour and under-represented industry professionals have increased visibility, accessibility, and recognition in our industry. We have three specific goals and a strategy to make this happen. We invite you to join the Academy in making equity and inclusion a reality in our industry, ensuring that future generations engage with content that reflects the diversity of Canadian experience.

​​As part of our continued commitment to support diverse voices in the media the Equity and Inclusion Fund is an ongoing year-round initiative.
