Today is Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a time to reflect on the ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and Canada’s painful history with Indigenous communities. Today is also a day to remember and honour the children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities as we work towards reconciliation.

In order to recognize this day properly, we will not be posting any new content on our social media and digital channels. We encourage you to join us in using this day for meaningful reflection and learning to better understand the challenges faced by Indigenous people historically and today.

Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA)


Monday, December 13, 2021


12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PT



One important strategy in creating a self-sustaining talent development network in Canada is helping Canadian producers own and maintain the rights to their IP.  In this special Academy Talks event, presented by the Canadian Media Producers Association, producers from across Canada discuss the road to establishing their independent production companies. From defining a company’s specialization, to structuring a financial plan, to seeking start-up funding or legal help, this panel discusses the first steps to founding a company.

Panelists to be announced.
