Commentaire / Comment
Regarding stock footage use in Canadian productions, I support the CRTC adopting the same modification the Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office (CAVCO) made on that subject matter. The CAVCO change moved “Stock Footage” from the “Services” column to the “Other” column in the Breakdown of Costs section of the the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC) application.

Categorizing stock footage this way is a more fair evaluation of costs. and helps Canadian documentary producers who need to use non-Canadian stock footage, due to subject matter and other factors. Those Canadian producers are currently at a disadvantage when that footage is labelled a “services” cost, as it makes it difficult for their production to meet the 75% Canadian services minimum spend to be eligible for the CPTC.
