Important to know

The Alberta Production Grant (APG) has now concluded. Program delivery accountability for a new Film and Television Tax Credit is transferring to Jobs, Economy and Innovation.

Current agreements under the APG will be honoured and active files with the APG will continue to be administered through the Cultural Industries Branch of Alberta Culture and Status of Women.

Producers who applied to the APG program may be eligible to apply to the Film and Television Tax Credit or a new grant program targeted towards Alberta owned small productions.
