Gender Parity at the NFB

In 2022, six years after making its initial commitment, the NFB continues to meet its gender-parity goals, both for the number of productions directed by women and for production budgets allocated to women. It has also met or exceeded its goals in most creative positions (screenwriting, editing and music composition), with a significant improvement in cinematography.

Beginning this year, the NFB is also reporting gender-parity data by genre. The NFB has achieved parity in all three production sectors—animation, documentary and interactive—both for the number of productions directed by women and for production budgets allocated to women.
