What is the Creator Network?

What are we looking for?

We are specifically looking for emerging content creators to make short videos (5 minutes and less) for audiences aged 18 to 30.

Content creators can be writers, filmmakers, vloggers, photographers, journalists, artists, hosts, foodies, or anyone else with a compelling idea and visual plan for brilliant and bold content.

We want creators to tell stories through their own lens, and we will license and pay for the content.

The content should be video based, but can also include other processing including web stories, animations, audio features, tutorials, explanations, photo essays, etc.

Here are some examples of Creator Network content from other parts of Canada.
