The Canada Media Fund 2013–2014 Annual Report is published to share important industry information with its stakeholders. The report includes detailed information on the results of CMF funding for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. The report also includes an analysis of Canadian audiences for the 2012–2013 broadcast year in television and the fiscal year 2013-2014 for digital media. References to awards, sales, and other forms of recognition feature productions that achieved these successes in 2013 or 2014 but may have been funded by the CMF prior to 2013–2014.

Statistics presented are as at the date of contracting with the CMF and are subject to change. As a result, a small number of funding agreements that were not yet signed at the time of publication of this report have been included within the data set. Figures in this document have been rounded. Shares depicted in data tables have been rounded to one decimal place, hence, where a share of zero percent is indicated, activity less than 0.1% may have been present. Financing Sources are defined in the Appendix.

The CMF is committed to providing accurate, transparent, and timely information to its stakeholders. If you have any questions about the data in this report, please contact us.
