Fee name

Fee levy under the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit Program (CPTC)

Fee type

Regulatory fee

The Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO) is responsible for determining whether a production is a Canadian film or video production and for estimating eligible labour expenditures for the CPTC.

The fees allow CAVCO to administer the program and recommend to the Minister of Canadian Heritage the issuance of a Canadian Film or Video Production Certificate and a Certificate of Completion for productions that meet Canadian content requirements and are thus eligible for the CPTC.

There are also fees for an amended certificate and certified copy of an already issued certificate.

Fee-setting authority

Department of Canadian Heritage Act

CAVCO of Canadian Heritage co-administers this program with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Reason for planned change of existing fee or introduction of new fee

CAVCO is a Vote Netted Revenues organization. It had two objectives for originally establishing the fee structure:

  • To establish fees that would be simple and equitable for the entire audio-visual industry; and
  • To recover the cost of the services provided by CAVCO.

In 2004, CAVCO modified the user fee structure for the CPTC program to maintain service standards.
