The Canada Periodical Fund (CPF) provides financial assistance to Canadian print magazines, non-daily newspapers and digital periodicals to enable them to overcome market disadvantages and continue to provide Canadian readers with the content they choose to read.

The CPF has three components: Aid to Publishers, Business Innovation, and Collective Initiatives.

Aid to Publishers provides funding to eligible Canadian print magazines and non-daily newspapers calculated using a formula based on eligible copies sold or circulated by verified request over a 12-month period. Publishers are able to use funding to support the creation of content, production, distribution, online activities, or business development.

Business Innovation: offers support for projects to eligible small and mid-sized printed magazine and digital periodical publishers.

Collective Initiatives: funds projects for organizations designed to increase the overall sustainability of the Canadian magazine and non-daily newspaper industries.

This summary is necessarily very general. See the detailed eligibility rules in the separate applicant's guides for each component to see if you qualify for funding.
