The Agreement of Audiovisual Co-production that happened between French and Canada was finally signed on July 28th. This is after a long time of negotiations that took place for nearly six years without concluding. The signing of the agreement was done online by Steven Guilbeault, the Minister of Canadian Heritage Minister, and Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, the Minister of Culture.
The signing of this agreement marks a great achievement between the French and Canadian ministries. The two countries have had over a hundred collaborative works that they have been involved in for the last five years. The main goal of this agreement was to facilitate the collaboration for audiovisual works for both French and Canadian professionals.
Generally, the new agreement covers television, cinema, and audiovisual media services. Once the new agreement is rectified, it will replace two existing agreements initially signed in 1983.
