Wednesday, April 25th, 2018 • 9:00am–10:15am • PP1 • Public Policy

Last fall, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, unveiled the Creative Canada Framework, which included a commitment that the Canada Periodical Fund would remain the primary vehicle by which the federal government supports Canadian magazines and paid community newspapers; but she also signalled that the program would be modernized to adapt to a rapidly evolving sector. Join senior officials with the Department of Canadian Heritage as they discuss new directions the CPF may take, timelines for implementation, and items to consider as the program changes to meet the needs of the sector in this time of transformation. This not-to-be-missed session will include a moderated Q&A with audience participation.
