Audiovisual treaty coproduction

An audiovisual treaty coproduction is a feature film or television production that has been created by pooling creative, technical and financial resources of Canadian and foreign producers. Canada was one of the first countries to recognize the advantages of audiovisual treaty coproductions. These treaties have advanced the audiovisual industry in Canada, strengthening international ties in the cultural sector; and promoting and disseminating Canadian culture abroad.
