The CBC has announced the first three recipients of their new Breaking Barriers Fund. The initiative, which was announced in November 2016, is a way to help underrepresented creators, such as women, Indigenous people and other visible minorities, tell their stories. The CBC is to invest $7.5 million into the fund over the next three years.

The projects that will receive this round of funding are: Meditation Park, written by Mina Shum, Angelique's Isle, written by Michelle Derosier, and Octavio Is Dead! written by Sook-Yin Lee. Mina Shum is a DGC Director Member. 

The DGC wishes the participants the best of luck and success while completing their projects.
