The CPF launches project to help emerging digital publishers
The Canadian Periodical Fund (CPF) of the Department of Canadian Heritage has launched a pilot project to support and inspire digital publishers. Emerging digital publishers and other creative entrepreneurs  have the opportunity to receive up to $5,000 in start-up funding to launch their digital-based project.

Applicants must contribute at least half of the projects funds, and priority will be given to those that raise those funds via crowdfunding campaigns. The CPF is looking for candidates who currently have no commercial operations, or are in the earliest phase of establishing operations (less than 12 months).

Additional eligibility criteria:
  • The business (existing or in development) is majority owned and operated by Canadians
  • Canada is the principal place of business
  • The periodical is (or will be) digital only
  • The periodical consists (or will consist) of an average of at least 80% original Canadian editorial content

Visit the CPF website for additional details.
