The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) says that by March 2025, more than 30 percent of its productions will be directed by filmmakers and artists who self-identify as black and “People of Colour.”

The federal agency said it is delivering on its commitment to “equity, diversity and inclusion commitments,” in an Aug. 31 news release.

The board said that the 30 percent commitment represents the “minimum expected outcome.”

“The NFB continues to evolve and adapt to Canadian society’s dynamism and diversity,” said the film board. In April 2022, the NFB distributed a self-declaration questionnaire to “respectfully collect data on the community of creators and creative partners.”
