From a media release:

The Canadian Television Fund (CTF) launched its new website today, a dynamic resource celebrating the best in Canadian TV. Visitors to can get updates on great dramas, documentaries, kids’ shows and variety and performing arts programs, along with detailed information on CTF funding activities and governance.

“The new website tells the CTF story by showcasing the many achievements of CTF-funded programming,” said Valerie Creighton, President of the CTF. “Along with providing materials to producers to access our funding and information to broadcasters on envelope allocations, the site also ensures that contributors, government, and the Canadian public have current updates on the CTF’s performance in meeting our evolving mandate.”

Success stories of CTF-funded shows are available on the website in the 2006-2007 Annual Report which offers detailed analysis of CTF funding streams and the projects they support. A feature on audience data delivers a revealing portrait of domestic viewing of Canadian and foreign programming, including CTF-supported genres.

The website also includes a Funding Results section which highlights newly financed productions and returning seasons of audience favourites that will air on Canadian television channels in the near future. A new Governance section contains the CTF Board Charter describing the Board’s mandate, accountability and composition, the CTF’s Policy on Independence of Directors and its Conflict of Interest Guidelines.
