What is the CBC Creative Relief Fund’s Innovation Stream?

An open call to Canadian content creators to submit short pitches to CBC for scripted, unscripted, kids & tweens, youth & young adult, and podcast projects to be considered for multiple development and production opportunities.

Submissions do not need to be about the Spring 2020 quarantine but the requirements of physical distancing must be respected in the making of the work. CBC is looking to develop original content that takes creative risks, is innovative, has the power to be transformative, and/or uses innovative technology to create that content.

We are looking for projects with a compelling POV and unique voice.  Projects that can be broadcast or streamed across linear and digital platforms are welcomed, and specific creative briefs can be found below.  CBC is committed to reflecting diverse, contemporary Canada in urban as well as rural settings. The material must be able to be produced in Canada as CanCon as laid out by the CRTC.

This is a designated fund to foster fresh, innovative ideas, so think big, bold and creative! The CBC Creative Relief Fund covers many different types of content from across the network through the following Innovation Streams:
