ONTARIO CREATES RELEASES 

 

·       Ontario Creates has released our Year in Review, giving the highlights of our 2018-19 fiscal year. This report demonstrates the results of our funding streams, and annual highlights for our creative industry sectors.

·         Competition for young people’s attention has never been greater. Ontario Creates and VICE partnered for a first-of-its kind research study examining ways to build affinity with Gen Z, with fresh insights on the ways 14-22 year olds discover, consume and share cultural content.

·         Ontario Creates has released the Ontario Creates Baseline Gender Study, a report which examines key business and creates roles within the sectors supported by our organization, establishes data on the gender breakdown of these roles in companies supported by Ontario Creates, and provides future recommendations on demographic data collection and analysis.

 

 

 CREATIVE INDUSTRIES POLICY AND FUNDING

 

·        The Liberal Party of Canada won the 2019 federal election on October 21st, forming a minority government. The party made a number of campaign promises of interest to the creative industries.

·        The Government of Ontario released their fall economic statement, 2019 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review: A Plan to Build Ontario Together.

·        In June 2019, Ontario Creates made a submission to the Government of Ontario’s Consultation on Intellectual Property in the Post-Secondary Education Sector. A copy of the submission has now been posted on our website.

 

 

ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

 

·        In Fall of 2019, the Ontario government held a Film Classification Modernization Consultation process to determine a replacement for the agency responsible for the province’s film ratings system. The agency’s responsibilities have been taken on by the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services until the consultation process is complete. The government is reviewing feedback and considering longer term changes to the Act.

·        A Statistics Canada-led public consultation on the revision of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Canada will be open from November 2019 to the end of June 2020. For more information on this revision, please see the Statistics Canada website.

·       The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is launching a consultation as part of the CBC/Radio-Canada license renewal process, to make sure that produced content reflects Canada’s diversity and needs. This CRTC consultation is available here, until February 13, 2020.
