The Bell Fund Industry Development Program offers financial support for organizations undertaking activities, such as events, research, panels, and training, to advance opportunities for professional Canadian audiovisual producers and creators.  Activities must align with Bell Fund Programs and Guiding Principles. Organizations must apply with ample time prior to the initiative for consideration and collaboration with the Bell Fund.

This Program does not support individuals, or content development, production, broadcast, or distribution.

We are in the process of updating the applicable program documents. In the meantime, if you would like to review the Guidelines, please email your request to Due to the limited funding, you must be invited by the Bell Fund to apply.  Please do not proceed with an application without being advised to do so. Thank you.
