The Foundation for Canadian Comedy (CANCOM) stimulates the creation of Canadian comedy at all critical junctures of comedy artists’ creative expression and the production of exceptional Canadian comedy Intellectual Property (IP). CANCOM’s financial support and service programs will enable comedy artists to explore their independent, creative journeys, as well as make professional artists in Canada competitive when responding to market-driven and regulatory demands for comedy content.
As a federally registered, not-for-profit incorporation, CANCOM supports comedy content being made and owned by Canadian comedy artists independently, as well as creates new models of collaboration. These new models benefit independent comedy artists and relevant Canadian comedy stakeholder organizations and government departments in the diverse, live theatrical performance and evolving digital media ecosystem.
