Omni’s Independent Producers Initiative is a $32.5 million independent production fund and seven-year funding commitment created and made available by Rogers OMNI Television for independent producers to create third-language ethnocultural programming. OMNI’s Independent Producers Initiative is the industry’s first and only major source of funding for the independent production of non-official language programming. OMNI Television will be reviewing proposals filed by independent producers seeking to access funds from this initiative and to broadcast these programs on our stations. A very broad range of subject matters will be considered and welcomed. To qualify for consideration, a program proposal must meet all of the following preliminary criteria: 

(1) The program must qualify as a "Canadian program," in accordance with the rules and regulations established by the CRTC. (2)The program must be produced in a language other than English, French or an Aboriginal language. Special consideration and additional funding will be given to successful programs that also propose additional audio track(s) in English or French. (3) The program must either be 30 or 60 minutes in length, and formatted for broadcast on commercial television.
