1) Research and Creation grants
2) Production grants
3) Scriptwriting grants

Each has a different application process. Production grants are as they seem,they cover all costs of production of the film.

Scriptwriting grants cover all costs associated with the creation of the script for the film

Research and Creation grants cover all aspects it may take to gather all information and hours to create the film.

The goal of this grant is to ensure the Canadian Film industry and the independent filmmakers within its circle remain very much active within the country and continue to keep Canada alive in film.
