RESEARCH INITIATIVES

Founded in collaboration with APTN, CBC, Telefilm, The Canadian Media Fund, NFB and CMPA, The Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) is tasked with supporting the development, production and marketing of Indigenous content, thus contributing to a vibrant Canadian Indigenous screen-based industry. The indigenous Screen Office believes that the collection of indigenous programming statistics is key to our mandate, and the success of our endeavour. To move forward, we must know where we are. To reach this goal, ISO has entered into a research partnership with the Quebec English-language Production Council (QEPC). The purpose of this partnership is to generate reliable production statistics on a) indigenous official language minority programming, and b) all other indigenous programming. We know that such a research project will be a long term undertaking requiring ongoing cooperation from all interested parties. It will involve:

1

Defining indigenous
programming
in English,
French, and
aboriginal languages

2

Identifying current
or potential
indigenous
programming
data sources

3

Requesting that
those sources begin collecting
Indigenous production data
based on a
common definition

4

Analyzing
and
publishing
this research
annually
