Creative Canada Heading for China

October 6, 2017 – Further to last week’s launch of the Creative Canada policy, the Minister of Canadian Heritage announced yesterday her intention to lead Canada’s first creative industries trade mission to China in April 2018.

With this creative industries trade mission, the Government will seek to establish greater commercial ties and opportunities for Canadian companies in the creative industries that wish to export and engage with the Chinese market in the following four sectors: film and audiovisual (including animation and visual effects); video games and virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR); digital content for public creative spaces and museums; and performing arts.

This trade mission is part of the Creative Export Strategy announced last week as part of the Creative Canada policy.

To express your interest in participating in this creative industries trade mission, please contact pch.missionchine-chinamission.pch@canada.ca. The selection criteria are detailed in this backgrounder. The criteria include experience or readiness for export in China.

Minister Joly also announced the release of A Snapshot of China’s Creative Industries, a market study commissioned by the Department of Canadian Heritage, in partnership with the Trade Commissioner Service of Canada. The market study highlights the tremendous opportunities for Canadian artistic and cultural content in China.
