Legacy Cross Platform Digital Media – Production & Development



The Legacy Program supports Canadian television programs that have a proven broadcast track record of success but have never had an associated enhanced digital media component through Production and Development grants.  This program is intended to support the library of outstanding Canadian television programming that is “evergreen”, and continues to attract audiences over the long term and which would benefit from enhanced digital media content.

Eligible television projects must have received at least one licence renewal by a Canadian broadcaster and intend to complement the broadcast with a Digital Media component. There must be an association between the two components.

Production funding for the digital media component is available in the form of grants which may be awarded as follows:

  • A grant of up to 75% of the cost of production of the Digital Media component, to a maximum of $250,000 per project; in addition to
  • A bonus grant matching any broadcaster(s) cash contribution (licence and equity) to the financing of the Digital Media component, to a maximum of $100,000.

Development funding for the digital media component is available in the form of grants which may be awarded as follows:

  • A grant of up to 75% of the cost of development of the Digital Media component, to a maximum of $50,000 per project

Approximately two-thirds of the funds will be designated to support English language projects and one-third for French language projects.
