About

CMF Trends is a fully bilingual site developed by the Canada Media Fund (CMF). It provides in-depth analyses of the transformations underway in the world of digital media and technology.

The site is intended as an information curator that filters news and synthesizes all of the noise generated by the overabundance of available data.

You will find on CMF Trends:

  • Hundreds of blog posts written by the CMF’s Industry and Market Trends team as well as by collaborators and experts based in Canada and abroad.
  • Dozens of research reports including our semi-annual trends reports that provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities for Canadian producers and creators.
  • Data on Canadians’ media consumption patterns and on major global trends to facilitate your searches, presentations, etc.

 

The CMF also regularly posts on Crowdfunding in a Canadian Context, an informative site dedicated to promoting an in-depth understanding of this funding method from the specific perspective of Canada’s creative industries. The site also provides project proponents with access to a complete directory of platforms.
