Important dates

Application intake windows

For productions with total production costs of $499,999 CAD or greater, the Film and Television Tax Credit offers a refundable Alberta tax credit certificate on eligible Alberta production and labour costs to corporations that produce films, television series and other eligible screen-based productions in the province.

Applicants may apply for either a 22% or 30% tax credit rate.

The Alberta Made Production Grant (AMPG) assists Alberta producers to develop Alberta content. It also helps them attract and maintain skilled labour by providing employment opportunities for emerging talent and established industry professionals.

Recognizing that small-budget productions have different funding needs than large-budget productions, the grant provides funding to help productions manage their immediate cash flow needs via an interim payment.

The grant supports smaller productions as an integral piece of the overall industry ecosystem in Alberta by:

  • promoting investment in the creation of smaller-budget productions by Alberta producers
  • supporting Alberta creatives by providing specialized support for emerging and established producers working on smaller-budget productions
  • providing cultural benefits to the province by supporting the creation of Alberta content and stories by Alberta companies


The grant covers 25% of eligible Alberta production costs to a maximum of $125,000. The program is competitive with a limited budget. Applications that most align with the intent of the program and ministry objectives will be awarded funding.

The Training and Mentorship Incentive, a top-up of up to $35,000 to the base AMPG, is available to support activities related to on-set training, job shadowing and mentorship.
