ABOUT IPF

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 finance drama series for the web.  This program now continues to support content creators of dramatic short form series created for digital platforms. In 2018 the IPF’s financial support for dramatic broadcast television series was also reinstated.
