On the proposed changes to CPF’s
Aid To Publishers Fund
10 a.m.-12 p.m. PDT
The Canada Periodical Fund (CPF) is an important source of funding for Canadian magazines. The Aid to Publishers (ATP) component of the CPF is designed to provide Canadian magazine publishers with financial support to produce and provide Canadian readers with high-quality Canadian editorial content.
The Department of Canadian Heritage has been hosting information sessions across the country to address questions about coming changes to ATP, starting with in-person sessions in June in Montreal and Toronto, and continuing with a session via teleconference/webinar for Alberta and British Columbia magazine publishers (and others who submit applications for ATP funding) Monday, August 12 at 10 a.m. PDT.
At this session (format still to be nailed down), attendees will have the opportunity to hear more about changes to the ATP application guidelines from Harold Boies, Director, Periodical Publishing Policy and Programs at the Department of Canadian Heritage. There will also be a question and answer period.
The session is free, however, registration is required. Please sign up via our EventBrite page. Instructions on logging into the teleconference or webinar will follow.
If this session becomes full, please join our waitlist. MagsBC will then liaise with CPF to arrange another session if there seems to be demand for it.
