List of acceptable online services pursuant to CAVCO Public Notice 2017-01

As outlined in CAVCO Public Notice 2017-01, CAVCO has committed to making available a list of online services that will be accepted for the purpose of meeting the “shown in Canada” requirement of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC) program.

This document must be read in conjunction with CAVCO Public Notice 2017-01 for full details on this policy, including the requirement for an agreement with either a CRTC-licensed broadcaster or a Canadian distributor.
