About CMPA

Our History

The Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) has represented the interests of independent producers of audiovisual content in Canada for over 60 years.

2016

The Association changes its name from "Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) to Canadian Media Producers Associaton (CMPA)"

The Association changes its name to better reflect our members, who are producers.

2010

The Association changes its name from "Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) to Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA)"

The Association changes its name to better reflect the multi-screen world and the future of our industry. The name change adheres to a tradition within the association to update itself as technology advances.

2001

The CFTPA added new media production to its representation within the sector.

1999

The CFTPA formed the Producer's Audiovisual Collective of Canada

The CFTPA formed the Producer's Audiovisual Collective of Canada (PACC), a non-profit corporation which acts on behalf of producers as a collective society for the management and distribution of royalties deriving from the sale of blank audiovisual media and from the rental and lending of video recordings.

1998

The CFTPA formed the Educational Rights Collective of Canada

The CFTPA formed the Educational Rights Collective of Canada (ERCC), a non-profit collective established to represent the interests of copyright owners of television and radio programs (news, commentary programs and all other programs), when these programs are reproduced and performed in public by educational institutions for educational or training purposes.

1994

The CFTPA formed the BC Producers' Branch

The BC Producers' Branch of the CFTPA was established to deal with the province's local and regional issues, and to provide an in situ solution for dealing with national issues in B.C.

1990

The CFTP merges with the CFTA to form CFTPA

The Association of Canadian Film & Television Producers, which was formed in 1984 to exclusively represent the interests of larger independents, merges with the CFTA to form the CFTPA.

1989

The CFTP forms the Canadian Retransmission Collective

The CFTA formed the Canadian Retransmission Collective (CRC) to recognize the new retransmission rights created as part of Canadian copyright reform and the Free Trade Agreement between Canada and the U.S. The CRC was created to ensure that Canadian independent producers would share in the new retransmission rights.

1988

The CFPD merges with the CFTA

The Canadian Television Program Distributors' Association (CTPDA) merged their membership with the CFTA.

1985

The CAMPP merges with the CFTA

The Canadian Association of Motion Picture Producers (CAMPP), which represented individuals, often producer-directors or writer-producers, merged its membership with the CFTA for more effective lobbying and representational purposes.

1984

The CFTA gains corporate status

The period from 1980 to 1990 reflected dramatic growth in the film and television industry in Canada and a number of competing groups claimed to represent segments within the production industry. In order to be representative of the whole industry, the CFTA federally incorporated and included a French translation in its name.

1974

Television added to CFTA's purview

The reference to motion pictures was changed to "Film," and "Television" was included to recognize the growth of that sector within the industry.

1948

AMPPLC founded

The AMPPLC was founded as the original provincial non-profit Association created before the arrival of television, and represented film producers at both the production and post-production levels of the then fledgling industry. The AMPPLC focused its lobbying efforts on expanding opportunities for Canada's independent producers.
