Shaw Resumes CTF Monthly Payments

OTTAWA, – Jim Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of Shaw Communications Inc. appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage today to announce that Shaw will resume monthly payments to the CTF as outlined in Circular No. 426.

The Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) is extremely pleased that its efforts and strong leadership in defense of the economic and cultural importance of quality Canadian programming has generated results.
"The CFTPA has been very disappointed with the behavior of Shaw and Vidéotron over the last several weeks, so today’s news that Shaw will abide by the rules and resume its monthly payment to the fund is incredibly important news," said Guy Mayson, President and CEO, CFTPA, "Given the fact that Mr. Shaw maintains that he didn’t break any rules, it is extremely important that the commission move quickly to amend its regulations to codify the traditional monthly payments to the CTF.

These amendments would go a long way to reverse the uncertainty in the production sector and would help correct the financial limbo caused by Shaw and Vidéotron."
"On behalf of the Board of Directors of the CFTPA, I want to congratulate our Broadcast Relations Committee and our Staff for their strong leadership in putting pressure on Shaw and Vidéotron to maintain timely payments to the Fund. We have been, and will continue to be, the lead industry voice and champion of quality Canadian content. The CTF is critical to the success of our industry and to the cultural objectives of the Broadcasting Act," added Ira Levy, Chair of the Board of Directors, CFTPA.
