    The Canadian Media Producers Association issued the following statement on behalf of President and CEO, Reynolds Mastin:

    “We welcome the announcement of an appointed advisory group that will provide ongoing feedback and support for Minister Joly as she moves forward with a comprehensive policy review, aimed at bringing Canada’s cultural policies into the digital age.

    We are very encouraged by the breadth and depth of experience of the individuals named to the panel, and are particularly pleased to see the inclusion of voices from Canada’s independent production sector. There is tremendous value in drawing upon experts who have produced audiovisual content for both traditional and emerging platforms, and have done so while operating within the existing policy and regulatory framework.

    As the Minister moves forward with the review, we are hopeful that any future policy toolkit will leverage the creative entrepreneurship and diversity of voices of Canada’s indie producers, so they can embrace innovative approaches to develop and deliver world-class content for audiences at home and abroad.”
