Industry research reports, white papers and online resources.

Industry Research

In September 2014, the CMF launched a new and convenient location for all industry research published by the Industry and Market Trends group. The new website trends.cmf-fmc.ca was designed as the flagship destination for all blog posts, research studies, video interviews and white papers previously located on cmf-fmc.ca.

The site merged CMF’s blog Trendscape, the Industry research section, and the Crowdfunding online resource all of which were previously hosted on the CMF website. The new site features CMF’s analysis blog (formerly Trendscape) which includes more than one hundred posts as well as video interviews. Favoring a collaborative approach with expert bloggers from Canada and around the world, readers can now find an extensive collection of specialized articles about the television and digital media industry all in one online property.
