Canadian Media Producers Association – BC Producers Branch

The Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) is Canada’s leading trade association for independent producers, representing more than 350 companies engaged in the development, production and distribution of English-language television programs, feature films and digital media.

With an underlying goal of contributing to the continued success of Canada’s independent production sector, the CMPA established the BC Producers Branch to support the province’s local and regional issues, and to provide a means for dealing with national issues in BC.

The BC Producers Branch is a non-profit trade organization that works on behalf of over 90 British Columbia companies engaged in the production and distribution of television, feature film, and digital media content. As an integral part of the film and television industry, the BC Producers Branch promotes the general interests of its members municipally, provincially, federally, and internationally, negotiates and manages labour agreements with guilds and unions, and undertakes a variety of industry development initiatives to build the capacity of BC based companies.
