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

As outlined in CAVCO's CPTC Guidelines and in 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’s CPTC Guidelines for full details on this policy, including the requirement for an agreement with either a CRTC-licensed broadcaster or a Canadian distributor.

If you are applying to the CPTC with an “online only” production, please ensure the online service where the production will be shown is deemed acceptable before you submit your CPTC application. Failure to do so could result in delays and possible denial of your application if the service is not accepted. Applicants should not assume that a service they consider similar to a listed service will be approved.

Requests for CAVCO to assess the acceptability of an online service should be sent to bcpacc-cavcoc@pch.gc.ca.

This list will be updated regularly and should be consulted often as services may not only be added but could be REMOVED.
