The Independent Production Fund was established in 1991 to provide financial support for dramatic television series created by Canadian independent producers for Canadian private broadcasters. In 2010, the IPF expanded its mandate to include an experimental pilot program to include financing of drama series for the web. This program has now been extended to 2014 and will continue to support content creators of drama series created for the web or mobile platforms.
The IPF’s Professional Development Grants program supports Canadian non-profit organizations or associations whose activities reflect the objective of the Fund and enhance the quality and availability of Canadian dramatic television and web series.
The IPF provides administrative services to other Private Funds.
